North Riding FA has today released our 2023 Referee Youth Voice Report.
The report, which is available to download in full below, has been produced following extensive feedback from North Riding FA’s network of U18 referees and parents.
Each year, we request feedback from our young referees to find out how they feel they are being supported, what they’d like to see improve and how they feel when performing their duties as a referee.
This year, our key findings from responses include:
100% of referees said that North Riding County FA supports them in their role as a referee
96% of officials said they wore their yellow armband to identify them as a youth referee
88% said they’d like to progress their refereeing career and move up the refereeing pyramid
98% rated the quality of North Riding FA’s referee development as either excellent or good

Thank you again to all referees and parents who took the time to provide their feedback.
The responses will continue to be analysed in detail by our Referee Development Team, with the feedback hugely valuable to the way that North Riding FA supports, develops and engages with our referees throughout all stages of their journey.
