Doug James will be presenting a refereeing course on Saturday 7th October at 10.00am within Holytown Community Education Centre in North Lanarkshire. The course if free to all who wish to attend.

The start time is at 1000hrs and will begin with a 2 hour theory session (there will be a theory exam on this course).

Lunch is at 1200hrs and a refreshment will be provided.

1300 - 1500 will be a practical based input.

For that purpose I would like to invite you to bring students for the purposes of fighting during the practical exercise. The students will have access to a seperate hall and when not being used for the practical exercise it is hoped that they could turn this into an informal, all styles trainning session.( Bags, focus mits, pads etc will all be available.)

While numbers for the referreing course is not restricted, if you are able to provide students please reply to me with the numbers you intend bringing.

Juniors are welcome however i would suggest no beginners.

Referees are asked to attend in refereeing uniform however if there are any new people who you would wish to attend casual dress will suffice.
