PRE-REQUISITES FOR REGISTRATION
If you are aged 16+, you will require a valid Criminal Record Check (CRC) to officiate in youth football (valid for a period of three years). Please note that you will NOT be able to successfully register for next season until this has been completed.
During your Basic Referees Training Course, you will have completed an FA Safeguarding Children Certificate which is valid for a period of three years. As best practice, it is our recommendation that you retain this qualification

PUBLIC LIABILITY & PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE
Please note that all referees must be registered by 30th June 2018, and therefore should not be actively refereeing after this date until you are registered for the new season, as you will not be covered under CFA Public Liability & Personal Accident Insurance.
We are delighted to confirm that the Personal Accident Insurance policy will be renewed for the period 1st July 2018 – 30th June 2019, and this cover has been specifically created to meet the requirements of all registered referees, assessors and coaches in Cumberland – further information will follow in due course.
