LEVEL 1 REFEREE COURSE

New referees go through this course before becoming available for appointments to a game. The course is essentially ‘Refereeing 101’, covering the basic requirements to referee a game. You can then officiate in youth and local senior football. The course costs $60 and takes roughly 6 hours to complete.

NZF WEBINARS

New Zealand Football in conjunction with its member federations value the hard work of our referees all around New Zealand and have developed a series of informal webinars which focus on supporting referees with a wide range of online learning opportunities. Click HERE for more.

These webinars that give community level referees advice and information on refereeing junior and youth matches.

They are designed for people that haven’t done a referee course or have completed the Community Referee Course and would be ideal for parents or siblings who are often asked to referee on Saturday or Sunday mornings.    

The webinars go for one hour and are interactive.
