Football Far North Coast will be running a Level 4 New Referees Course in Ballina on Saturday 23rd March for those who wish to become a match official in 2019.
We also highlight that Northern NSW Football have introduced a Referee Starter package in 2019, which is fully supported by Football Far North Coast. The starter package includes the following items for a payment of just $100 ($50 of which is to be paid upfront prior to the course);
- Level 4 Referee Course
- Laws of the Game Book
- Professional Referee Whistle
- Assistant Referee Flag
- Black Umbro on-field Shirt
- Black Umbro on-field Shorts
- Black Umbro on-field Socks
- Set of Red and Yellow Cards
- Match Record Book and Inserts
- Full Referee Registration for 2019 with Football Far North Coast
The only item not included in the starter package is the required polo shirt, which is $35 (total cost to officiate in 2019 is $135)
This represents a saving of $150 for junior match officials (ages 13-18) and a saving of $180 for senior match officials (19+)!
So there is no better time to become a match official!
