Mission 2022

You're in the hot seat, it's the final of the Commonwealth Games, match point and you have to make the call? Could you do it? Have you got the skills, the composure and the knowledge?

We've recruited and are working with approximately 50 new and existing referees to develop their skills in time for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Our Mission 2022 candidates will be positioned at the forefront of refereeing, fast-tracked to become one of the best in the world. Our current crop of referees are supporting the cohort through a range of mentoring, peer and formal assessments, academy sessions and training days. Each referee has a Personal Development Plan which guides them through the process each year with the ultimate goal of being part of the team that referees at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham 2022

The ‘Class of 2018’ will drive the sport forward and showcase the importance of refereeing. The scheme is open to all referees and we are constantly reviewing those involved, if you would like more information on the scheme please email

If you want to qualify to become a referee please have a look at the current courses available to attend.
