Have football experience? Take our shortened refereeing course - 6 Mar 2023

Perhaps you're considering taking up refereeing, but with all your footballing experience don't really want to do a 2 hour online course and an 4 hour practical course (not to speak down the value of that course, just that it is not likely to be ideal for those who already have spent lots of time involved in the game).

Realising the understanding of the game experienced members of the football community have, the SSFRA is running a shortened referee course that recognises this, and is only two hours to complete. No pre-work, no exams – just the two hour course on the night, and some mentoring after the course on the field. The aim is to get you on the field as soon as we can!

The course is available only to individuals aged over 18, with at least 10 years of playing experience.

Course Information and how to register:

The course will be held on Monday 6 March from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the offices of the Sutherland Shire Football Association, as follows:

Harrie Denning Football Centre Bates Drive Kareela NSW 2232

Register early as spots are limited!

The cost of the course is $200, but referees who complete this course will receive a $100 bonus after refereeing their 10th Sunday in 2023.

You must also get a NSW Working With Children Check done

You will require a paid check. Your number must start with WWC and end in “E”. FNSW policy requires this as referees are paid even though the NSW government does not. This can be obtained from: If you already have a current WWC “E” number from another role, you can skip this step.
