Cadet & Club Referees Course
Club Ref - with the introduction of these courses we are endeavouring to help with the falling numbers of Referees by providing Club Assist Refs which will allow the spread of qualified active Ref to more matches knowing that each club has “accredited” help at their ground. If the individual is interested, they can become active within the NF Referees and subsequently become a Match Official and be appointed accordingly.
It is expected that each Club entering All Age Men/Women, Over 35’s will send a minimum of one participant per team or if a Club has multiple squads then one per two teams.
Cadet Ref – in past seasons we have provided Instructing Referee courses, to cover the SSF (now MiniRoos) matches in 8, 9, 10 & 11 ages. The 2014 course has now taken on a more significant status and therefore a Cadet Referee will be the accredited level and appointed to matches. The Club will still be involved in local appointments but NF Referees will appoint Cadets to the NET program matches at Wallarah Oval each Saturday; to give as many as possible the opportunity to officiate the NET match’s appointments will be set in advance on a rotation bases allowing for travel.
All courses are FREE, completion of the Club Assist Ref course will be recognised by the NF Referees for any extension for full Match Official standing in the future. NF Referees have a limited number of shirts (free) available to those who complete the Cadet & Club Refs course.
Courses will be held as follows:
Cadet – Saturday, 22nd March 2014 @ Walker Fields, Elermore Vale (South Wallsend FC) – 1.00pm. Age groups = 12 & 13 year old – male / female.
