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-U11 age groups (replacing referees for U10/U11), 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 U18 GLs only).
If you would like to mentor our Game Leaders and are aged 18 or above, there is room for you as well!
More information on this program is available here: https://www.balmainfootball.com.au/game-leaders/.
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.
