NSFA REFEREES PROGRAM

2017 NSFA Referee Program

In the Men’s Competition each Team or Squad is required to nominate referees (see table below) to become members of Ku-ring Gai and District Football Referees Association (“KDFRA”). KDFRA provides training to new and continuing referees to achieve various levels of accreditation.

KDFRA FFA Referee Qualification

This is a comprehensive referee training program. It provides an official qualification (subject to meeting criteria) that is recognised throughout Australia and in some overseas countries. The program is in two parts; an on-line Laws of the Game pre-course followed by 6 hours of face to face learning covering 10 modules. The face to face component can be taken in 3 x 2 hour sessions or 1 x 6 hour session (see dates/times on KDFRA website – www.kdfra.asn.au ). KDFRA charges fees for the course and as a member body has annual membership fees. In 2017 NSFA haveonce  agreed to meet these fees for NEW referees (not qualified in 2016). KDFRA referees are paid for officiating matches to which they are officially appointed. For further detail visit www.kdfra.asn.au.
