Become a Referee

In order to become a qualified referee there are 2 components which you must complete:

1) FFA Online Laws of the Game Course and Examination

2) Level 4 Referee Course

 


1) FFA Online Laws of the Game Course and Examination

This is a free online training module which provides you with a basic introduction to the Laws of the Game and their interpretations. After completing the course, participants will receive a certificate which will allow them to attend a Level 4 Referee Course.

This course on its own does not provide you with any official FFA Refereeing qualification.

The FFA Online Laws of the Game Course can be found here

 

2) Level 4 Referee Course

The Level 4 Referee Course is designed to complement the FFA online Laws of the Game Course and is aimed at match officials wishing to officiate on community and premier competition football.

The Level 4 Referee program is a combination of classroom sessions and practical mentoring.

Upcoming Course Dates can be found here

 

In order to attend the Level 4 Referee Course, participants must:

> Be 13 years of age at the start of the course*

> Have successfully completed the FFA online Laws of the Game Course and Examination within the past 2 years. A copy of their FFA Laws of the Game Certificate must be provided to the course instructor prior to undertaking the program.

*Any person who is not yet 13 years of age but still wishes to become a qualified referee is asked to please contact the Northern NSW Football Referees Department at referees@northernnswfootball.com.au


Use the New Referee Starter Pack for $100

This amount covers:

The cost to attend a Level 4 Referee Course

A Laws of the Game Book

A professional referee whistle

A referee shirt, shorts & socks (black in colour)

A set of red and yellow cards

An assistant referee flag

A match record book

Full referee registration fee

The full value of all of these costs is normally over $200. However, in order to attract as many new referees as possible, NNSWF is heavily subsidizing all of these costs.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding becoming a match official please don’t hesitate to contact the Northern NSW Football Referees Department at referees@northernnswfootball.com.au
