Refereeing Opportunity at School Games in September

The SVA Referee Commission are looking for referees/technical officials for the Sainsbury’s 2015 School Games which will be held from Thursday 3rd to Sunday 6th September 2015 in Manchester. As in previous years, referees should be Grade Two or above but Grade Three referees will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Technical officials should have relevant experience as a line-judge and/or scorer.

All officials must be able to arrive in Manchester by early evening on the Thursday and will need to be available until late afternoon on the Sunday, so please bear that in mind if you decide to volunteer.

The organisers will provide hotel accommodation close to the venue (NB: you will be sharing a twin room with another referee/technical official in most cases), food (breakfast/buffet dinner in the hotel plus lunch at the venue) and they will reimburse any travel expenses (you will be encouraged to travel by train, if you decide to drive then please note that the organisers will only cover your fuel costs, they will not cover parking costs).

If you are interested, e-mail Grant MacIntyre by Friday 3 July 2015 – please indicate if you are interested in being a referee or a technical official. Technical officials should also indicate if they are volunteering as a line-judge or a scorer.

Those selected will be informed the following week as all officials need to be registered on the EMS system by 25 July 2015.
