Referee Development

At the Nepean Referees Group we are committed to the education and development of our referees. We have physical training along with upgrade examinations and many hours of video presentations to enhance the skills of our referees.

In 2016 we have already set our New Referees courses. If you would like to become a referee please go to the form titled ‘become a referee’ located under the Referees tab. We look forward to you becoming a referee and joining the 5,500 Football NSW referees.

Providing you are 12 years of age or above your path to becoming a Referee can begin right here. 12 and 13 year old referees will be placed on junior fields for refereeing and Assistant Refereeing duties. Please fill in your details and one of our team will be in contact shortly to ensure you are ready to referee with us just as soon as you have done your online Refereeing course and your orientation day. Refereeing football requires someone who remains calm, focused and has a knowledge of the laws of our game. Understanding the laws of the game is crucial. Please fill in the form in the section titled ‘become a referee’ and one of our team will be in touch to discuss the next steps.
