Ayrshire Referees Association
Ayrshire Referees Association

Who We Are

The Ayrshire Referees Association is affiliated to the Scottish Football Association and is responsible for bringing together, developing and recruiting football referees throughout Ayrshire. We hold regular meetings at the home of Killlmarnock Football Club, Rugby Park, Kilmarnock; weekly training sessions at St Matthew's Academy in Ardrossan; and many other events to promote refereeing in our area throughout the year. Please see the Association Structure page for further information about the great and the good in Ayrshire. One very important aspect of refereeing is the social side of things; please see the Social pages for more information.

The Association has been in existence for over 60 years and continues to go from strength to strength. Classes running for a total of 9 weeks, for budding referees, are held once a year at St Josephs Academy in Kilmarnock. In August 2016, a second class will also be run from St Matthews Academy in Saltcoats.
