UEFA Refereeing Assistance Program (RAP) videos that have accelerated my development

UEFA releases Refereeing Assistance Program videos twice a year to help new and advanced referees alike improve their craft.

I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say this is a resource that can help you grow from an average referee to an elite one.

You can get everything set up on your computer and be watching videos in the ~5 minutes by following the set up instructions and downloading the most recent files from the Dutch Referee Blog.

  • It’s 100% worth downloading the Mulppy app. It allows you study the entire video library on one single platform.

  • Each RAP file takes up ~10GB of space. It’s a large file but as long as you’re only keeping one RAP session of video files on your computer at one time, it shouldn’t be a problem in most cases.

Videos are categorized into different study areas so you can focus on both your strengths and areas of improvement.
Pages and pages of videos. Hell yeah!
Click “INFO” in the bottom right corner of videos and get the outcome UEFA believes should be the consequence. Wow!
You can also see the severity of the offense on a 1-10 scale. This helps me compare severity between different plays and really hone in on the correct consequence.
