Positive response to the Referee and Volunteer Workshop with the National CP League

A free workshop was held on Saturday 17th August at Tresham College, Kettering for football Referees and Volunteers.

The workshop provided those who attended with an overview of the National CP Football League and the structure of the league for the 2019-2020 season.
Ten participants attended the workshop either in person or via a Webex. There was a mix of current referees within the league and new referees keen to be involved in the league for the upcoming season.  

Comments from those who took part:

“The league rules are clear, it’s important Referees have a good understanding, so the workshop was good. Understanding the classification system was beneficial to me.”

“Course was clear to understand and delivered in a relaxed manner which made it a positive experience.”

“Very interesting and engaging. I have learnt a lot and hopefully will get more involved.”

“A Learning day.”

The CP National League fixtures take place from Saturday 28th September.
