‘I can honestly say it was the most focused, enjoyable and informative course I have attended. The pre-course programme of questions was so helpful and I can only say that we wouldn’t have been successful without your huge input to researching the 5th edition and designing the format for our benefit and it was greatly appreciated!’
‘Very well structured course; good balance of theory and practice; superb tutor’
‘Our success is entirely due to your work on 5th Ed. and your subsequent groundbreaking thoughts on how to see the Rules, and approach to the exam through your programme of online questions. You’ve raised the bar to a very high level. Hopefully the days of the current model of droning on while thumbing aimlessly through the Rules are over.’
‘Pre-course study was very helpful; online questions & answers very good indeed … s0 good to be able to repeat the tests at will, and as often as possible’
‘Many thanks for an interesting , informative, challenging and enjoyable course. Even if I had not passed, I would still have got a great deal out of the course.’
‘Managed to make a dry subject enjoyable; liked the pragmatic approach’
‘Many thanks for making it such an enjoyable experience.’
‘This was certainly one of the best, most useful and informative courses I have done – full of interesting details and discussion.’

The SWCA is delighted that Tim King has agreed to lead the GC Rules & Referees course again this year. In 2019, Tim’s highly innovative course was unanimously awarded 5 stars, and all participants successfully qualified as Referees.
Tim is one of the most experienced GC referees in the UK and, as well as being an Examining GC Referee, he is also a Championship Referee and a member of the CA’s GC Rules Committee. If you want to qualify as a GC Referee or simply learn more about the Rules of the game, it doesn’t get much better than this!
The course is suitable for GC players of all abilities – whether you just want to learn more about the Rules of the game, or whether you wish to actually qualify as a Referee. However, if the course is over-subscribed then preference will be given to players intending to qualify. Players who do not wish to sit the assessment test should enrol for the first day only (23 April). The GC Referees assessment will take place on the second day of the course (24 April).
Players intending to become qualified GC Referees should have a good working knowledge of the Rules before attending the course, and must be CA Members to hold the qualification. The CA offers a £25 reimbursement to member delegates taking the exam, and your Federation may also offer financial support.
