Welcome to Sports Officials UK

SOUK is the umbrella organisation that supports the development of sports officials generically in the UK.  It’s a membership association for Sports National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and other connected organisations. Many of the representatives have a clear responsibility for officiating and the volunteer workforce within their sport.

We are all aware of the critical role of the sports officials and volunteers in delivering professional safe and enjoyable sport. SOUK is fully committed to providing the best possible support for the recruitment, reward, development and retention of officials and volunteers so that they can meet the need of the sport or activity they represent.

This website hosts everything you need to know about SOUK and is the gateway to our individual members’ access to a range of generic and sport specific e-learning modules as well as an online logbook.

If you haven’t signed up with us yet, why don’t you take a look at the Sports Officials Posts on the left hand navigation area to get he latest officiating news and to see what SOUK has to say.  Follow this up with a visit to the Learning Zone to get a taste of what we can deliver.
