RA Development Weekend- 4th/5th July 2020

4th & 5th July 2020

Join us at this year’s RA Development Weekend for a host of practical training sessions and development workshops, where we will be looking at a range of key topics aimed at improving your refereeing toolkit.

The theme for the 2020 Referee's Association Development Weekend is Teamwork and will look at how you can focus on the key areas to develop yourself as part of the team when a match official.

There are many highlights, including interactive Indoor workshops, the Referee Awards Dinner, and a number of Practical outdoor sessions on Saturday afternoon. We have a great range of high-profile guest speakers, awards to recognise many and much, much more.

There is something for everyone.

2020 will see the Development Weekend continue to grow - so we look forward to seeing you at the event.

 Highlights this year include:

*High-Profile Guest Speakers and Tutors

*Practical Outdoor Training Sessions on Sat 4th

*Referee Awards Dinner on Sat 4th

*Presentations and Indoor Workshops on Sun 5th

Coffee/Tea and Lunch is being provided for everyone on Sunday at £20 per head.

The RA is subsidising you as the actual cost per person is much higher.

Accommodation should be booked before 31st March to ensure  we have sufficient rooms at main hotel.
