GYW Go Games Referee Courses 2022

  • Jan 10,2022

Referees Courses - Jan / Feb 2022 - ALL SOLD OUT

Updated 11th Jan - 09.22am

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. Dublin have acquired 4 x GYW Referees Courses in Jan / Feb 2022. We have no guarantee as to the number of additional courses will be made available to us after these four dates are completed as the LGFA have to administer courses to all 32 Counties.

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.

Jan / Feb GYW Go Games Referee course dates are as follows:

Jan 17th from 7-9pm SOLD OUT

Jan 24th from 7-9pm SOLD OUT 

Jan 30th from 7-9 pm SOLD OUT

Feb 7th from 7-9pm SOLD OUT

Once the course booking is made and the booking transaction is completed on our website GYW Course participants MUST set up an account on the GAA E-learning portal to gain access to the webinar. CLICK HERE Elearning Registration Guidelines.pdf

Please note: Users of the GAA E-Learning portal will be first asked to input their age for the site to comply with legislation around the Digital age of consent. Any user under the age of 16 is considered a minor and will need the consent of a parent or guardian to create an GAA E-learning account.

The course participant should set up their account on the GAA E-Learning portal as soon as they have made their booking so to have plenty of time to deal with any issues which may occur. 

Note the email address provided on our booking system will be the address that will receive the webinar URL and password to gain access to the course. So please make sure the correct email address is provided and do not use a work email address whose firewall may block emails from an outside source.

This webinar URL information will be emailed to the email address provided on the booking form a day or two prior to the date of the course.

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.
