Mentoring & Volunteering
Wiltshire has a small group of referees and former referees who give up their spare time to support the development of other referees. Observers watch referees and then supply a written summary of the game to the referee out lining their strengths and areas were they could further develop their refereeing skills. These observations are then used by the Wiltshire FA to decide which referees should be promoted at the end of the season.
Wiltshire’s Observer team is lead by Dave Clarke who appoints observers to games, collates their reports and delivers training for both existing and new observers.
