2017 Fitness assessments
Tony Weight, 19 June 2017
The League’s fitness assessment is open to all Spartan South Midlands match officials. The following dates have been arranged for the fitness assessments during this coming summer. Please let us know where you intend to take the test, and at which venue.
Dates and venues are as follows:
- Sunday, 9 July 2017 — Stockwood Park, Luton
- Sunday, 16 July 2017 — Stockwood Park, Luton
- Sunday, 30 July 2017 — Stockwood Park, Luton
- Sunday, 6 August 2017 — Stockwood Park, Luton
The assessments will commence at 10am on all dates.
The assessments will consist of 2400-metre run to be completed in 12 minutes and after a 15 minute break, two 50-metre sprints, each to be completed in 7.5 seconds.
All Level 5s registered with the Spartan South Midlands League who complete the fitness assessment successfully will be eligible to referee Spartan League Division 1 games (which are at Step 6). These games are ideal if you intend to go for promotion.
Level 5 to 4 County FA promotion candidates can also attend. Their requirements are more testing, 2600 metres in 12 minutes and two sprints of 50 metres completed in 7.5 seconds.
If you fail to complete any test you can always return and take it again.
