LEVEL ONE REFEREE COURSE (ONLINE VERSION)

You can do most of the course at home, in your own time. The date set for the course is the only session you physically attend with an instructor. This session will be about 3 hours in duration and includes the last couple of modules (including an outdoor session), discussion on other parts of the course and refereeing in general and a test on the Laws of the Game (LOTG).
