Mentoring & Volunteering

The East Riding FA works with a number of volunteer Referee Mentors to provide all match officials in the county the best possible support throughout their careers.

Our Referee mentors play a pivotal role in providing regular guidance and offering feedback to our new and inexperienced referees' as well as those that have officiated for a considerable number of years

Other opportunities to support the refereeing workforce include observing, tutoring and coaching. All voluntary positions provide some reimbursement; if you would like to get involved, please contact the Referee Development Officer.

You will need to have an in-date FA CRC and Safeguarding Children Certificate and have attended one of our Mentor Training courses.

As much or as little as you can commit to - there is no minimum timescale or limit to how much time you can offer.

Absolutely not. The skills of a mentor are empathy, encouragement, motivation and communication. If you have these in abundance you are the type of person we're looking for.

Yes you can. 

As a relatively new referee, you will know first hand the kind of support a new referee will appreciate in the early part of their refereeing journey.

Yes, you will. Mentors and Volunteers receive a fee and/or travelling expenses - for more information on fees, please contact Will Dodds.
