WHAT IS THE SCHOOLS REFEREE PROGRAM?
FQ is providing schools the opportunity to offer free in-house Level 4 introductory referee courses to students through the Schools Referee Program.
The program aims to boost the number of student referees and address the shortage of match officials available for school games while providing students with an opportunity to gain further qualifications within the school environment.
Benefits for Student Referees
Through refereeing, students exhibit improved confidence, self-discipline and a sense of responsibility, developing skills in problem solving and conflict resolution.
Students also gain the opportunity to earn money while embarking on what may become a rewarding career path.
How can Football Queensland assist?
FQ will deliver the Level 4 introductory course at a time that best suits the school and provide schools with marketing collateral to assist in promoting the course to students.
