Want To Be A Referee

NEW REFEREES ARE ALWAYS WELCOME AT SOUTH PINE TOUCH

South Pine Touch conduct introductory referee courses each season according to demand. If you are a new referee or just want to learn how to referee, South Pine Touch provides regular coaching and support each week, if and when required.  Referees are allocated to games according to their experience and skill.

If you have not refereed before but know a little bit about touch, we can start you off by allocating you to one of the social competition games with a senior referee to coach you.

You must be 13 years old to commence refereeing at South Pine Touch. Both males and females are welcome to referee.

All referees at South Pine Touch are paid. If you do a dual game you will be paid $15 a game and paid $30 for a single game. So, if you are thinking of becoming a referee, then read the following:

HOW DO I GET STARTED AS A TOUCH REFEREE

STEP 1: Contact the South Pine Touch Football Referee's Director by email: admin@southpinetouch.org.au.

STEP 2: The Referee's Director will organise for you to attend pre course training, followed by a Level 1 Referee Course. The course will cover rules of the game and aspects of refereeing techniques that you will find useful. The course will run for around 5 and a half hours.

STEP 3: Attend the South Pine Touch competition each week, where you will be placed with a senior referee who will coach you during your games. When you feel comfortable, you will be given games on your own. On-going coaching will still be provided.

STEP 4: Over time, you will be invited to attend various development activities and seminars or courses, that together with coaching, will provide the opportunity for you to improve your skills as a referee and be upgraded to a higher level.
