Hi All

The Atherton Club has organised a ref’s course for January 31st at NO CHARGE to participants. The TJSA would like to encourage as many coaches, parents, supporters and senior players (13+) to attend and complete the course.

If you would like to take part, the details are as follows:

Level 4 Referee Course (free to attend)
Date: Saturday 31st 8:30am to 4pm (arrive by 8:15am)
Register by January 27th here: https://education-ffa.sportingpulse.com/Entry/?EID=11475

You will need to complete your online Laws of the Game component and bring a copy of your completion certificate on the day. You can do the online component by clicking here: https://laws.myfootballclub.com.au

Please make sure you complete your online Laws of the Game and the following workbooks:

Referee Workbook

Referee Resources

These workbooks and your completion certificate for the Laws of the Game need to be presented on the day of your practical assessment

This year the TJSA hopes to have enough referees available to cover all competitive age groups without having to call on coaches to ref their games. As an incentive we are discussing payment for refs and assistant refs for each game. This is an opportunity for senior players to earn some extra money. We are discussing having refs for U10 age groups and up so there will be plenty of opportunities to develop the standard of refereeing.

Please remember that it is easy to criticise the standard of refereeing but we struggle as a sport to find and develop referees. Here’s your chance to step over the white line and do a better job!
