Young Potentials Returns

The start of the 2018/19 season will see the return of the LFA Young Potentials Academy

The Lancashire FA are delighted to confirm the return of the Young Potentials Academy from the start of the 2018/19 season.

The scheme is aimed at providing our younger officials with the necessary guidance and support needed in order to be able to progress further within their refereeing careers. Led by Football League referees and FA tutors, the group will meet four times during the course of the season, where referees will be provided with practical referee training, indoor technical sessions and regular Laws of the Game examinations.

Referees accepted into the group must be between 14 and 16-years-of-age, clearly demonstrating the ability to progress into adult football within the next two seasons, showing a clear commitment to refereeing and the desite to want to to progress further. They must also display a high level of administration and communication skills. 

If you have any questions regarding the Young Potentials Scheme then please contact our Referee Development Officer, Lewis Smith on 01772 644277 or email lewis.smith@lancashirefa.com
