Wat kan je verwachten van onze stages?

For some participants this may be perceived as routine. Together with our partners Football Flanders, ING and Patrick, we try to offer enough variety.

On Saturday 21 December, participants and observers were expected at 8.30 am in the Club House for the start of the Talent Day. The physical preparation of the participants was tested, but other elements of talent were also put to the test. There are many more goals to pursue to enable participants to one day take the step. This "step" can be taken by adopting an attitude of open learning within the larger perspective of officiating. This session was presented by Lawrence Visser.

The course was divided into two groups before noon:


1. Exercise and analysis of the game situations Russia - Belgium, Stijn Hutsebaut & Kris Bellon
