Dorset FA Launches U18 Referee Campaign!
Our new initiative will see yellow armbands introduced for all referees under the age of 18 from the 2019/20 season.
We are keen to support all referees in the game but it is important to remember that those under the age of 18 are still children and the future of the game. The idea of the yellow armband is to help identify those referees who are under the age of 18 and ensure they are supported whilst reminding managers, coaches, parents and spectators to think twice about making insulting or abusive comments to the young referees. Dorset FA is committed to The FA’s Respect Programme and hope this will further promote the ‘We Only Do Positive’ campaign.
