2019 Pre-Season Seminars

Football West will again operate two pre-season seminars for referees in 2019, recognising that the season of some officials commences earlier than others. Both sessions will be identical in nature, and officials are welcome to register for whichever seminar they wish according to their availability. These seminars will provide officials with detailed explanations on the amendments to the Laws of the Game as well as any changes to interpretations as provided by the International FA Board (IFAB). There will also be presentations on other development topics pertinent to referees in preparation for the upcoming season.

There is NO COST to attend the pre-season seminar, and we encourage all match officials to attend one of the dates. We do require you to register for the seminar, and you can do so by clicking on the links below:
