Keys To Referee is an e-learning and development platform that enables  analysis, evaluation, tracking and assessment which is personalised for any referee at any level…  It is not about the STATS for us – It’s about development.   

We aim to enhance the learning, knowledge and understanding  of match officials across all sports ensuring their continued  progress to develop and raise standards for all sports.  If you are willing to learn, we are happy to help. We have an expert team of former elite referees that offer feedback and advice using the analysis, evaluation, and development platform regarding your performances and decisions made. We want you to develop regardless of level or involvement in the game. 

You can become a member for free and start a discussion with our team of experts. You can ask us for advice, send in your refereeing or football clips for discussions and become part of our daily and weekly discussions through our social media. We want to provide advice through different media forms to help all referees. Sign up for free now.
