Referee holds whistle and football

Walking Football Referees Course

To support the growth of Walking Football throughout the county, Northamptonshire FA has organised a Walking Football Referees Course to take place at Thomas Becket Catholic School on Wednesday 30 January 2019 between 6:30pm and 9:00pm.

Priced at just £5, attendance at this workshop will equip learners with the key skills and knowledge required to be able to referee Walking Football safely and effectively.

Upon successful completion of the course, learners will understand the key elements of refereeing Walking Football and the differences between Walking Football and ‘mainstream’ football. They should also be able to demonstrate that they can apply the ‘Laws of Walking Football’ effectively.

The workshop will benefit both qualified referees and Walking Football players who are interested in becoming Walking Football referees.

Pre-workshop, learners are required to watch a selection of match clips to familiarise themselves with the key elements of Walking Football. Learners will also review ‘Laws of Walking Football Made Simple’.

The course involves a mixture of practical and theory work, so please dress accordingly.

For further information, please contact Stuart Smith, Football Development Officer, on  or 01604 678409.
