Date and times:
Sunday 27th May 2018: 9:30am – approx. 4:30pm.
Alstonville FC Clubhouse (Crawford Park) – Freeborn Place, Alstonville.
Cost & Inclusions:
The fee for this course is $50, to be paid directly to FFNC by direct deposit into their bank account. This is inclusive of NNSWF’s $35 course fee in addition to Football Far North Coast (FFNC) providing a whistle, law book, printed materials and lunch.
FFNC will REFUND the full $50 fee for all those who complete the course and then subsequently register to become an active match official this year (more details will be provided at the course). The registration fees to become an active FFNC match official in 2018 are $120 for juniors (18 years and under) and $150 for seniors (19+ years) and FFNC is also pursuing a way of easing that cost as part our strategies and objectives to deliver better outcomes. And for those who are eligible and haven’t already used their Active Kids Voucher, the voucher can even be used as part of the 2018 match officials registration fee!
The total course fee of $50 is to be paid directly to FFNC by direct deposit into our bank account as follows:
