10/5/17 Referee Level One Course 

Hello All,
We are looking at holding a NZF Referee Level One course in each of our five regions in the month of June
Referee Level One is for persons at least 14 years of age and maybe have the intention to enrol with the referee group
Depending on numbers in each region – the course could be a full day course or a course made up of online components and a 2 hours session with myself
An induction course for those who wish to be available for appointment to a game. The course is essentially a ‘Refereeing 101’ covering the basic requirements to referee a game.
You can then officiate in youth and local senior football!
We are short of referees in some regions and we ask if this email could be forward out to all players/coaches in each club/school please
Referees that are accredited with a Referee accreditation and belong to a Regional Referee Group are giving a start package of a referee shirt, shorts, socks and a referee notebook – they also paid a match expense of up to $27.00 per game they officiate on.
Any interested person can contact myself
Thanks & Regards

Massey Football calling all existing and new players to training……


“Firstly, a Happy New Year from all at Massey Football, and congratulations on such an enjoyable season by all last year.
Massey Football is currently searching for passionate coaches and managers to assist with the development of our football club and, more importantly, players.

Women’s Central League
The main positions required to be filled are the Women’s First Team coach and manager. The Women’s First Team are joining the new Central Federation league this season and are excited to be competitive in this new arena, they have been very successful, with 3 Central League wins and a National Cup runners up medal, in the last 5 seasons. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a passion for football and coaching to develop their skills at a high level, with talented, young footballers looking to improve and develop their skill levels. The manager’s role will be an extremely important role, and will take over the main running of the team, ensuring people are where they need to be, and transport is organised accordingly.

We are looking for someone committed and passionate, with the ability to take 2 Trainings a week and travel for game days on Sundays, when required, for away matches. We, at Massey Football, have a real passion and commitment towards the development and wellbeing of our club and players, and we want that reflected through our coaches, managers, and players.

If you are interested in this fantastic opportunity, please email

The successful candidates will be invited to a meeting with the committee and asked a few questions. We will be looking at your experience and coaching philosophy to ensure the wellbeing of our club and players.

Pre-season trainings and Trial dates
We are also inviting all players to come and trial for the Massey University Football Club, social or competitive. Our clubs day is on the first Wednesday of the University Semester, Wednesday 1st March 2016, where you can come and meet committee members and current players, and ask any questions you may have.

Trials will be held on the following weekend, Men’s on Saturday 4th March 11am-1pm, and Women’s on Sunday 5th March 11am-1pm, where you will meet the coaches and managers of the teams.

Pre-season training will commence for men and women (combined at this stage) on Thursday 9th February at 6.00pm and will then continue on every Sunday 11am-1pm and Wednesday 6-8pm until university begins start.
