Referee Workshops announced to enhance Gameplay

QuidditchUK are excited to present a special series of Referee Workshops for 2019. These workshops, managed by our very own Gameplay Director, Eamonn Harrison, are designed to cover the practical knowledge of refereeing, from paper to pitch.

A Northern edition is taking place on the 14th September in Victoria Park, Leicester. The Southern edition will occur a few weeks later on the 29th September in Clapham Common, London. Both sessions will run for the whole day, starting at 09:00 and finishing close to 17:00.

It is important to note that these events will not have any professional medical coverage, only Volunteer First Aiders will be available. However, no full games are planned to take place during either event.

For those who attend for the whole day are eligible for a new rate of pay for refereeing during the season, higher than written test only but lower than field tested (subject to Gameplay discretion)

Places for these workshops are limited and reserved on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. If you are interested in securing a spot, please register using the sign up form.

These referee workshops wouldn’t have been possible without the collaborative efforts from Velociraptors Quidditch Club and the London Unspeakables. We thank you for helping us in hosting these events. 

We are looking forward to improve the quality of refereeing throughout the sport, with more workshops like these planned to occur later in the 2019 – 2020 season.
