About the Young Referee Development Programme

The FA Referees’ Committee approved the change from a Young Referees’ Conference to the YRDP as they believe it is an exciting change which will provide exactly what is needed to aid the development of England’s young referees.

 The YRDP consists of three elements:

 

  • The foundation course focussing on managing the game at grassroots.
  • Learning in the workplace, with its clear emphasis on you taking responsibility for your development.
  • The advanced course, which looks at developing a team and working as a team.
