REFEREES, UMPIRES AND LINESPEOPLE
How do I become a Ladies Gaelic Football Referee?
If you wish to become a Ladies Gaelic Football Referee and you have no refereeing experience you can complete our ‘Grab Your Whistle’ Go Games or a ‘Grab Your Whistle’ Level 1 course. These courses are aimed at new referees and will provide the basics of refereeing to allow the referee to begin officating underage games within their County.
The best method to progress through the Referee Pathway is based on experience and continuous attendance at Referee Seminars and Workshops.
To find out about Referee Courses being run in your County, contact your County Development Officer (or Secretary).
How do I become a Provincial Referee?
If you are a minimum of 21 years old and have at least 4 years experience refereeing ladies football you can apply for the Provincial Accelerate Programme.
