We have a growing membership with an age range of 16 through to 65+ with the vast majority being active referees. The group consists of newly qualified Level 7’s through to experienced Level 4’s, plus a number of Matchday Coaches and Observers. 
So, we have a healthy mix of knowledge and experience of both grassroots football and the Step system that we share amongst the group which means there are lively debates and discussions on the game. We are a friendly and welcoming group and we try to make our meetings as fun as possible. We have several guest speakers throughout the season, our own in-house training sessions and an end of year meal.

Join the Referees Association

The National RA recommends that prospective members should join through their local LRA, the easiest way being to attend one of the many local association meetings that take place across the country on a regular (usually monthly) basis. Find your nearest branch now.

Alternatively, online membership is now available for any referee who wishes to take up central membership. The National RA will then allocate you a local branch. Join now.
