Referees Course
Longford Ladies County Board are inviting interested new referees to train and to officiate at non-competitive Go-Games. An online webinar will take place to train new Go-Game referees if enough young people are interested.
On completion of the course the new referee will be qualified to referee up to age under-12 non-competitive Go-Games. The course participants must be 15 years and over to complete this course. This course will be rolled out over one evening as a webinar and will last two hours’ maximum. Following completion of the course Longford county board will commit to organise a Go Games Blitz for the new referees when restrictions are lifted and it is safe to play these games. A minimum number of 12 participants are required for the course to be viable and only those registered on the specific link will gain access to the online course.
This is a great opportunity for young interested people who want to try out and see what it is like to be a referee and to officiate at non-competitive U-12 Go-Games.
