The aim of the article is to study the system of the training process of football referees. The principal research approach to the training of football referees is a structural analytical approach. The research methods are analysis and generalization of scientific and methodological literature and informational environment on training football referees, questionnaire, pedagogical observation, experiment and methods of mathematical data processing. In the article there are results of monitoring the motional activity of football referees of various qualifications. Moreover, it was found that during matches the heart rate varied in different pulse zones with variable power of work. The program of physical training of football referees of different qualifications has been developed with the help of athletics in the annual cycle. The relation between the level of competition, the load felt by the referee and the parameters of motional activity was determined. The results that prove the positive effect of the usage of the author’s program for training referees are presented and discussed. The article will be useful to football referees: from beginners to experienced ones, in order to correct their training.

The correct choice of location on the football field, the referee’s position while assessing game episodes shows not only the qualification of the referee, but also shows the level of physical preparedness. Thereby it is very topical question in modern football to study not only the system of training of football players, but also football referees too.
