Appeal for new Referees at Adult and Minor levels.
The following is a joint request for new Referees issued on behalf of the County Referees Committee (Coiste an Réiteoirí) and the CCC. I would be grateful if you would circulate it amongst your Club Membership please.
As you are aware, in anticipation of the lifting of current Covid restrictions, CCC is preparing for the season ahead. This year (2021) we have received a significant increase in the number of teams entered in our competitions across both codes at Adult and Minor levels with a significant number of clubs entering more teams than any previous year.
With the increase in teams, combined with withdrawals due to Covid fears, age, etc. comes an additional requirement for new referees. We are already operating with insufficient referees and this increase in teams will put even more pressure on CCC being able to appoint referees for all games.
Without an increase in referee numbers CCC will be unable to guarantee referees for all games in the coming season.
CCC are asking you for three specific actions.
- Circulate this request for new referees to all your members via your normal communication channels (email, social media etc).
- Confirm the date (no later than Friday 26th February 2021) back by email to An Rúnaí CCC that you circulated this request to your members.
- Advise CCC by Friday 12 March, of the names and details of your members who are interested in becoming referees.
Upon receipt of these names Coiste na Réiteoirí will run a Foundation (Beginners) Course as soon as Public Health advice allows.
