Each week we need help with setting up our fields to accommodate games and other events. This includes field size changes, ropes, barriers, goals, benches, etc., and we need efficient hands to help us get through the busy days and evenings.
At BDFC we appreciate any leadership initiatives from our teenage members. We will be happy to help you with any relevant goals and targets you may set during your Duke of Ed path. We may be able to assist in volunteering, skill training and assessing.
Would you like to become a Game Leader or a Referee?
The Game Leader (GL) program is being implemented across CDSFA from 2022, and is available to anyone aged 11 and above. It covers the U8-U12 age groups (replacing referees for U10 to U12), and it’s a great introduction to leading and running games, as well as a good way to earn some pocket money (payment is for GLs aged under 18 only).
If you would like to mentor our Game Leaders and are aged 18 or above, there is room for you as well!
There are plenty of great reasons for becoming a football referee. You actively participate in the sport, you help raise the standard of football, you develop a network of close friends, you develop your management and communication skills, and it’s a great way to earn some money.
Referees are an integral part of Football. The first steps to becoming a referee at the World Cup starts at the local level. The pre-requisites for becoming a football referee are:
– You must be a minimum of 13 years old
– You have a passion for Football.
It’s that easy!
The Canterbury Referees Association (CRA) are actively seeking new referees to join our community. People of all experience and fitness levels are accepted. If you would like to be part of this exciting culture, please check out how to become a new referee with the CRA HERE.
For qualified junior referees who are also registered players (13 to 18 years of age), Balmain DFC have a rebate program in place to help offset some of the annual costs of CRA membership. Please contact the Registrar at email@example.com for more information.
At Balmain DFC we greatly appreciate any assistance from our parents and members. Maybe you have a relevant skill that you think can be of value to the club, or you would just like to be involved and see how you can help.
For match days, you can always ask our staff at the designated ground canteen for any tasks you can help with
