How Can The Third Team's Resilience Training Help My Organisation?

Over the years of supporting officials, referee development officers and referee educators, Nathan is lucky to have played a small part in helping many people overcome challenging situations and referee with a smile on their face.  

The resilience workshops in the short video above were delivered in January 2020 to 2 groups of CORE referees at North Riding FA. The workshops had an emphasis on improving performance with a section dedicated to proactive mental health guidance specifically for referees.  

Below are examples of some pieces of work where different people have provided testimonials.

These are just a few examples of why referees and referee development officers approach Nathan Sherratt and The Third Team to improve their mindset, well-being and performances.

At The Third Team, we work with officials from all ages, backgrounds and ability levels.

The Client Viewpoint

"I would fully recommend Nathan, he delivered an interactive and engaging session to our up and coming Centre of Referee Excellence Group. Nathan adapted his session to the needs of the group, providing really helpful strategies and signposting some really important and fundamental coping techniques which he also provided on a handout as requested. Nathan has a real sound knowledge base on his subject, showing lots of passion and I would fully recommend Nathan."

"Nathan delivered a superb interactive session to our Referee's Association, based around Resilience in Refereeing. He listened to our needs and gauged the session and the audience perfectly. He encouraged participation and group work and in particular was able to engage our younger attendees, who under normal circumstances may not have felt comfortable in contributing. Nathan was open and willing to answer any questions and his friendly, professional manner ensured that everyone felt at ease and were able to take away positive learning from the session. Highly recommended!"

"We worked with Nathan a few months back to deliver a session to our Derbyshire referees. The session was well received by our referees and that’s credit to Nathan’s delivery! He was professional and knowledgeable throughout and was great to work with pre-session to get the presentation right for what we were looking for. I would highly recommend Nathan and look forward to working with Nathan and The Third Team again soon."

"Surrey FA have worked with Nathan on a number of occasions and they have always provided thought provoking content which has been well attended and received by our match officials. The work to support the mental health of officials in particular has been of interest to us and we will continue to work with Nathan to design our 2021/22 season development schedule for officials."
