Refereeing whilst at University
EVERY SEASON THOUSANDS OF REFEREES UP AND DOWN THE COUNTRY LEAVE HOME AND START THEIR TIME AT UNIVERSITY...
So whether you're moving out of the county, or moving in, the Sussex County FA want to make sure you're able to continue refereeing whilst you study.
Continuing to referee with a new County FA will not only allow you to stay involved in the game and continue to develop as a referee, but it also provides you with additional income to support your studies and can help you get to grips with your new community.
Moving to Sussex?
There are plenty of opportunities available to referees moving to study in Sussex. However, in order to take advantage of these you will need to affiliate with the Sussex County FA. Once you have confirmed your move, contact the Sussex County FA to find out more about the affiliation process (it's really simple).
If you're leaving Sussex to study elsewhere in the country, you will need to affiliate with your new County FA. However, if you are planning to come home regularly, you can still be used by the Sussex County FA and be an associate member of the new county you have moved to. If you're unsure of the best route to take, get in touch.
Yes, especially if you are going home at any time. As long as you are a registered referee, you can referee anywhere in England.
Referees only need to register with their parent county (where they live) each season but can register with another County FA (for free) as an Associate Member.
