Referee Programs Panel

State Operations Advisory Panel (SOAP) is responsible for delivering outcomes and contributing to the TFA strategic objectives, in accordance with the TFA Location Scorecard and TFA Volunteer Handbook.

The SOAP is made up of five volunteers who are elected by the membership within that State, and two remaining positions appointed by TFA. These two positions work in collaboration, ensuring information flow and engagement occurs between Representative and Referee Programs.

The Referee Program Chair works with an appointed Referee Panel. TFA anticipates recruiting key individuals from different parts of the Referee Program to support collaboration and a cohesive approach which may include Referee Course Facilitator/Assessor, Active Referee, Event or Competition Referee Coordinator and the Head Referee Coach. The Panel will work with the relevant Sport Operations Managers to implement a local Referee Plan to service affiliates and ensure state event requirements are met.

The members of the WA Referee Programs Panel are;

  • Brian Blechynden - Chair
  • Position vacant - Referee Coach
  • Ben Grainger - Event and Competition Referee Coordinator
  • Kevin Bradshaw - Referee Course Facilitator and/or Assessor
  • Mike Ellis - Active Referee
