Become a Referee in 2019

Thank you for your interest in refereeing with the MWFRA. We are an organisation with over 600 passionate members with a vast range of football experiences, who are responsible for providing referees for U12 to adult matches sanctioned by the Manly Warringah Football Association.

We run around four FFA accredited course for new referees in February and March each year. There are no plans to run more courses in 2018, however, if you are turning 14 or older in 2019 and interested in becoming a referee, please complete an expression of interest here and we will send you more information when it is available.

Already have a refereeing qualification?

If you already have a valid refereeing qualification, you may be eligible to transfer into our branch without needing to undertake another course. Please read our information here for more information. You can check the status of your FFA qualification here.
