Football Queensland (FQ) has today released a Futsal Referee Information Pack as the futsal season kicks off across the state, providing an overview of the structure of futsal in Queensland and outlining the benefits of refereeing futsal for new and existing outdoor referees.
“We were delighted to release the 2020-2022 Futsal Strategy last week, unveiling a clear and bold vision for futsal in Queensland to support the growth of the game and unlock the potential of the sport,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“We know the growth of the game is underpinned by the quality and number of coaches and referees, and Football Queensland remains committed to improving futsal referee education and development opportunities to welcome more referees to the game of futsal.”
“Becoming a futsal referee can provide a number of benefits for referees, whether they are new to the game or coming from outdoor football,” State Referee Manager Jacqui Hurford said.
“As well as providing a great way to earn some money over the summer months, for outdoor referees futsal also offers an opportunity to expand their refereeing skills and participate in the game year-round, often leading to improved performance when they return to outdoor refereeing at the conclusion of the futsal season.
“With associations and clubs in a number of regions in 2020, there are futsal refereeing opportunities across South West and South East Queensland, Wide Bay, Central Queensland and North Queensland.
“We encourage anyone interested in becoming a futsal referee to download the Futsal Referee Information Pack as a first step, before registering for an upcoming Futsal Referee Course.”
