Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) is holding an Information Night for young members from Newcastle, Hunter Valley, and Macquarie Referees Associations, to outline its plans for their advancement for match officials in 2017.
The Information Night will discuss:
- How greater opportunities will continue to be provided for the identification, coaching, assessment and development of the area’s young and talented match officials
- How the NNSWF Referee Development Pathway works for the progression of aspiring young referees to officiate on premier youth football, at State and National Championships and ultimately on premier senior football
- How young referees can progress by being able to experience the next level by refereeing on premier youth competition matches whilst continuing to officiate on community football with their local branch
The night will be conducted by NNSWF Premier Competition Match Official Co-Ordinator, Brad Carlin who is committed to creating the best possible opportunities for Northern NSW’s match officials.
“Just as we [NNSWF] currently identify talented players and provide them with a pathway to the next level, our Referee Development Pathway provides a similar identification process and pathways for young and talented referees throughout NNSWF.”
“NNSWF is committed to continuing what has been achieved in 2016 with the young referees officiating on its premier youth competitions being regularly assessed, coached, mentored and advanced. The feedback from the referees who have participated in the development program has been overwhelmingly positive.”
The Information Night is open to any young referee who is already benefitting from officiating on premier youth competition football and also those who are thinking of doing so in 2017.
It will be held in the Seminar Room at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility on Wednesday 16 November 2016 between 6.30pm and 8.00pm.
