Registrations for this course will close on 27th May 2022 (i.e. seven (7) days prior to the course date)
The course is open to any individual aged at least 13 years who is interested in becoming a match official in 2022, however is particularly aimed at people who are aged at least 18 years and further individuals who had their place of residence directly impacted by the devasting flood event this year. Football Far North Coast will cover the cost of the course (which is ordinarily paid by individuals to Northern NSW Football) for any participant who had their place of residence directly impacted by the flooding earlier this year AND any person aged 18 years or older (for this course).
The course is open to ANY other individual who is interested in becoming a match official in 2022, however the NNSWF course fee of $150 will be invoiced in such situations where the participants place of residence was not directly impacted by the flood events this year or they are under 18 years of age. The cost reflects the inclusions in the NNSWF Starter Package (refer details in the link below);
A chronic shortage of match officials continues to exist in every region and the logical place to source more match officials is from clubs (i.e. existing and past players) and interested adults (e.g. parents).
