Referees Courses

Referees Courses - Jan / Feb 2022 


All LGFA County Boards must organize their referees’ courses via the LGFA in Croke Park. Course bookings and tutor availability is fully administered by the LGFA. 


We would advise clubs to encourage not only teenage members to take up refereeing but maybe also to consider approaching adult players or parents who may not be in a position to coach or mentor a team but would be happy to give a helping hand by refereeing an underage game for you at the weekend.


Dublin organizes annually more club fixtures than any other county board and as such we have a ‘specific referee pathway’ agreed with the LGFA National Referee Development officer Claire Dowdall due to the uniqueness of our county fixtures set up.  


GYW Go Games Referee pathway – Year 1 U8 to U10 fixtures  


GYW Go Games Referee pathway – Year 2 U8 to U11 fixtures  


GYW Go Games Referee pathway – Year 3 U8 to U12 fixtures  


Course participants can be 15 years of age doing the GYW course, but they must be 16 years of age to officiate a Dublin LGFA game. All people working with juveniles in any capacity are required by law to be Garda Vetted and hold an up to date Safe-guarding certificate. You must be aged 16 to be vetted. Contact your club children's officer for more info.
