In order for the WFA to keep pace with the growth of powerchair football, it is vital fo us to recruit and train more referees and assistant referees.
We have developed a course which combines the theory of the Laws of the Game and also a practical element to put the theory into practise. This provides the best platform to help our new referees to learn.
This course is a 2 day training event (normally over a weekend) with Day One being a theory, classroom based session and Day Two linked to an event (Regional League or festival event) to provide practical opportinities to officiate.
We then encourage the participant to contact their nearest club and "get involved" with the training to learn more about the game, to improve their disability awareness and most importantly, to get to know the players.
To become a WFA referee you must be a minimum of 16 years old.
