Published: 25/01/2016 3:06:00 PM

It's time to put your whistles where your mouths are! With the ever increasing player numbers, the demand for refereeing grows yearly.
Have you considered becoming a referee? Have you thought that joining the best team on the park would ensure camaraderie, fitness and allowing your knowledge of the game to become an even greater asset?

Please note the following courses are being run at a cost of $30.00 (includes course material and LOTG book) for all those interested in joining the Eastern Suburbs Football Association Referees Branch.

Junior Course (open to 13 to 17 year olds – please note you must be turning 14 in this calendar year to be eligible to complete this course)

To be held on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th February from 9:00am to 1:30pm with both days being compulsory

Please register here

Senior Course
(open to 18 years and over)

To be held over one day on Saturday 20th February, 2016 from 9:00am to 4:30pm

Please register here

Junior and Senior Course
(open to all aged 13 turning 14 this calendar year and above)

To be held over four nights with all four nights being compulsory. Tues 23rd Feb/Thurs 25th Feb/Tues 1st Mar/Thurs 3rd Mar 6:30pm to 8:30pm (all nights)

Please register here

Please note should you choose to referee with the Eastern Suburbs Football Association there is a registration cost and equipment cost for all new referees. This would not be needed until the course has been sat.

Match fees paid to referees are not taxable and therefore whatever money is earned from refereeing is all yours!! Your registration and uniform costs would be paid for within a couple of weekends of refereeing, then it’s pocket money to enjoy as you wish as long as all rules of the ESFA Referee Branch and ESFA Competition are followed.

We have monthly meetings for all referees which we would encourage you to attend, as well as technical and fitness sessions. You can become as qualified as you wish and you will be assisted through to elite level.

We hope you choose to sit these courses and become part of the most important and best team on the park with ESFA!

Let's all become part of the solution! Look out for the article in this week's Southern and Wentworth Couriers about what it means to referee with ESFA.
