Last Chance to Apply as an LGFA National Referee Assessor!

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association recently announced details of our 2016 National Referee Assessor Training Programme and the closing date for this has been extended to Monday 6th June.

Please find included below documentation that will provide you with details of our referee assessor recruitment and training programme. These documents will provide clarity regarding the significance of the role and ensure that minimum standards are in place across the LGFA Assessor group at all times.

Our Referee Assessors play a major role within our Association in conducting assessments on our National Referees to ensure standards are increased and support is provided to our National Referee Panel. Referee Assessing is a very rewarding experience and provides personnel with the opportunity to influence and shape so many of our current referees which in turn raise standards of refereeing at all levels. The feedback provided through assessments allows referees to continue to progress and reach their own goals and targets.

All potential candidates have to do is:

  • Be aware of the commitment required to become an LGFA qualified National Referee Assessor (See National Referee Assessor Training Pathway)
  • Meet the minimum criteria (See role description)
  • Submit an Application Form (See below) by Monday 6th June

A panel selected by the LGFA will review the applications in line with the role description and will allocate places accordingly. Following selection by the panel, all applicants will be informed of the outcome within two weeks of the closing date.

We would be grateful if you could forward same onto all clubs or anyone you feel may have an interest in this area.
