Become A Referee

Refereeing is a great way to continue your enjoyment of the game after or even during your playing career. 

If you are passionate about football, then refereeing offers a different challenge and gives you the best seat in the house.  It is also a great way to keep fit, utilise and develop your people skills and pursue a footballing path that allows for an individual training schedule.

You can maintain your current links within the game, forge new friendships and give back to the game in a direct and meaningful way.  Refereeing can also open up travel opportunities both within New Zealand and to the rest of the world.

If you are interested in becoming a referee and would like the club to assist with some of the cost, please email chrisdianemarlowe@xtra.co.nz with what course you are wishing to participate in so we can support you on your referee aspirations.  You will be supported by the club both in training and during game days.
