Conditions of being a PUP

These are some of the requirements included in the PUP's Program

    • Training once a month – Tuesday afternoon about 500pm – 600pm. Tuesday afternoon was chosen because most teams train that night and this may give the Pups a chance to referee some senior teams without competition night pressure.


    • Fitness test every four months


    • Some games being recorded on DVD for coaching purposes and reviewed by both the Pup and Top Dog.


    • Refereeing clothing – both on and off field shirts. These will be supplied to the Pup as recognition for making the squad.


    • Refereeing at tournaments and carnivals (Red Rooster Cup – Rockhampton, School competitions and NQ Junior Championships).


    • Attend referees meetings/Bbq on a monthly basis.


    • Regular tests/questions sent via email.


    • A new Acme Thunder Whistle.


    • Competition/Sports Bag for the Pups refereeing gear.


  • A pair of refereeing shoes (Blades or Asics).
