The qualification level of football referees may be limited by insufficient functional capabilities of the central nervous system. Psychophysiological testing revealed the peculiarities of sensorimotor reactions of novice football referees. Leading psychomotor abilities are identified. This is the ability to quickly process sensory information and the ability to maintain a steady concentration of attention. The results of the study can be used in the system of selection and training of football referees.
Keywords: referee, sensorimotor reactions, psychophysiological tests, referee training in football.
