Maltese refereeing officials attend Refereeing Assistance Programme Course

Last month, Assistant Director of Refereeing Andrè Arciola and the Head of Recruitment & Retention Unit Paul Caruana, attended this year’s four-day FIFA / UEFA Refereeing Assistance Programme (RAP) Course in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Topics covered during the discussions included: Latest interpretation of the Laws of the Game; Challenges during set pieces; Offside; Women’s Football; and Methodology to be used during lectures.

The information, latest teaching material and practical methods presented by the RAP instructors were interesting not only for participants but also to be shared with referee instructors, referee observers and referees in their respective countries.
