Whether you are playing, watching, coaching or officiating we want our sporting events to be a positive and rewarding experience. In order to achieve this, all we need is a little REF-SPECT!

Promoting fair play and professionalism

It is vital that our young people enjoy participating in our events and programmes in order to keep them engaged in sport and physical activity.

We provide an inclusive platform for young people to excel and achieve their personal best. Ultimately, we want our young people to lead healthy and active lifetyles, experience various opportunities where they can express themselves, showcase their talent and compete fairly in an environment that promotes sportsmanship, professionalism and etiquette. We can all play our part in achieving this.

Dont X The Line

We are proud to be working in collaboration with Don't X The Line's national 'REFSPECT' programme. Headed by Mal Lee at Don't X The Line, their national REFSPECT programme seeks to raise awareness and eliminate problems experienced by referees at all levels of the game of football, in particular at grassroots level. DXTL have kindly allowed us to promote our Merton based programme under their National REFSPECT banner.
