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 will, very soon, be the launchpad for individual membership and access to a range of generic and sport specific e-learning modules as well as an online logbook. Individual members will also find a wide range of benefits offered which complement those provided by NGBs. The e-learning aspect of the website is currently being tested and will be launched soon. At that point, we will be in touch to direct you towards the Learning Zone to get the full picture!
