MWFRA Team Referee Courses

As part of the MWFA’s requirements, all senior mens teams AL2s and below, O35 and O45 must provide 2 qualified referees. To do this you can undertake a course with the MWFRA. In addition to meeting the MWFA requirements, as a team referee you also get the opportunity to improve the standard of local football, improve your fitness, and get paid. The MWFA pays all the fees associated with becoming a team referee for up to two people per team.

I was told that I don’t have to pay the course fee. Why has the system created an invoice/says I need to pay $210?

The course cost for non-team referees is $210, however for team referees this is paid by the MWFA. Please ignore the fee.

I have refereed previously. Do I need to recomplete the course?

To be a team referee you need a current FFA approved referee accreditation. FFA Accreditation continues for 5 calendar years from the year you first completed the course. You must have officiated at 20 games in those 5 calendar years for your accreditation to remain valid (ie 20 games in 5 years, not 20 games per year).  If your qualification is not current, you will need to complete the course again. Note that depending on past experience, you may be able to complete an advanced course rather than recompleting the Level 4. Contact for more details.

Do I get paid as a team referee?

Yes! As a guide, in 2020 the fee for a standard senior mens match was $56.70.
