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
