Northern Suburbs Football Referees Association (NSFRA) provides match officials for all NSFA Summer and Winter competitions, as well as selected NPL Fixtures.
There are so many different reasons to become a referee. It’s a great way to:
1. Earn some extra money
2. Give back to the game you love
3. Stay fit and active
4. Build leadership skills like effective communication and decision-making.
To become a referee, you must be 13 years of age or over and you will need to complete the Football Australia Online Laws of the Game Course as well as completing a Level 4 Referee Course.
STEP 1: The Football Australia Online Laws of the Game Course provides a basic introduction to the Laws of the Game and their interpretation. To successfully complete the course, a participant needs to pass the online examination and print their Statement of Completion Certificate.
STEP 2: The Level 4 Referee Course provides participants with education and training to become a referee. It can be undertaken in a classroom environment as a one-day course consisting of theory modules and practical sessions on a pitch to enable referees to begin officiating. Dates for 2023 NSFRA courses will be published via this link.
