You can submit an Expression of Interest for courses in 2021 here.  You will be notified once course registration is open for 2021.

All senior referee’s must also have a valid Working with Children Check

You must have  a paid working with childen check from the Service NSW, which you can apply for here, before your referee registration can be approved. A WWCC  costs around $80 and is valid for 5 years. Your WWCC number and expiry date must be entered when you register.



The course fee is too expensive. Is it possible to pay later?

The course fee includes uniform, FFA/FNSW registration fees, a LotG book, online payment fees, and course materials. We do not aim to profit from the courses and feel they are competitively priced. As such, we are unable to offer discounts or options to pay later.

How much will I get paid?

As a guide, the match fees from 2020 are here. Please note that they are subject to change each year.

I am unable to attend the courses for seniors. Can I attend a juniors course?

As our juniors and seniors courses include different content and teaching methodologies, we are unable to offer juniors courses to senior referees.

What is your cancellation policy?

We follow the FFA’s cancellation policy, available on page 11 of the FFA’s AODS. Please contact us ASAP if you need to withdraw from a course.
