Scheme to support more young KENDAL UNITED PLAYERS to BECOME REFEREES. 

KU coaches can nominate players that they think are ready and good candidates for the scheme.

KU players can join the Refs programme from Year 8 if they have been put forward by the Coach. 

An important part of the scheme is that the young people are reliable and serious.

Junior Ref:

  • Aged 13 – 18 (Year 8+)
  • Help out at 8 Saturday morning sessions to get experience of the club set up, helping out with lots of coaching sessions and refereeing lots of games of junior football.
  • Once these sessions are complete and the young person is 14 years old the club will pay for the FA Referees Course.
  • Once they have completed the course the young people  can join the pool of KU referees – potential paid work.
