Dublin GAA has been rolling out an extensive Juvenile Referee programme for the last number of years. Children starting from 14 years old move through three levels allowing them to referee juvenile games.
One of the final aims is to have confident, experienced young adults moving through from refereeing juvenile games into the adult referee programme. Check out this website for more details and information Club Coaching & Games Development (dublingaa.ie)
Children who are interested in becoming a referee can contact our club secretary, Brian Geraghty, at Secretary.firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. They can also look to their mentor / manager for help. There is also a register of current club members who are referees, this would be available from our club secretary or club coaches.
