Training and Development

Along with Referee Courses, Suffolk FA is committed to providing high quality training for all Suffolk officials to learn and improve as match officials.  We would highly recommend that you attend the scheduled training and development opportunities available.  We will shortly be publishing a calendar of events for the 2016-17 season.  By providing you with advance notification of the event, referees have the opportunity to plan their respective diaries.  Details regarding each training event will be emailed to all referees and your confirmation of attendance will be required.

For further information regarding the training and development provided to match officials, please contact Referee Development Officer Mary Harmer on 01449 776310 or 07890 587288 or
