What can you get from our meetings
If you live in and around the Southampton area and you are a football referee or would like to become a referee then come along and join the Society that represents you in your area.
We have weekly fitness training sessions run in conjunction with Hampshire Football Association. Everyone is welcome to attend, but it is not compulsory. These sessions are guided by Southampton RA's County Fitness Co-ordinator, Mike Misselbrook, at Wide Lane.
By becoming a full member of this society you are automatically insured by the National RA for any injury or loss of kit, you may sustain whilst officiating. RA kit and accessories can be purchased at very competitive prices from our own supplies officer,
We always strive to provide the opportunity for referees of all ages and abilities to meet, socialise and learn in a very relaxed and informal atmosphere. We are totally committed to concentrating on refereeing issues to help develop all members. Membership is open to all people interested in football as well as referees.
You can gain advice and guidance on interpretation of the laws from our training officers, assessors and senior referees. Law amendments are always fully explained to you by our FA licensed instructor.
For the younger referee, we have a youth section known as Kens Corner which will help you during your early days as a football official. We can also help in your appointment to Southampton FC Academy games plus organise a mentor for you.
