Soccer can’t run without referees.
How do you like to have the best seat in the house?
Do you fancy being the man (or woman) in the middle?
Want a hobby where you can earn money and enjoy yourself?
Then you should take up refereeing…..
Fancy earning some extra money whilst learning and enjoying yourself, then first you need to complete the Laws of the Game course. The course is free and can be found here
Once the course is completed just contact the association referee coordinator by email so we can look at getting you to referee your first game.
The AJSA is a learning environment and we start all referees in our 10’s, 11’s and 12’s to build up confidence.
If you enjoy it and want to further qualify yourself, the next step is to complete a Level 4 referee course.
Albany Soccer tries to run a level 4 course once a year and is nationally recognised.
Our association runs a Respect program which is a continuous campaign aimed at creating an enjoyable environment that allows people to play, officiate and watch football without being abused, mocked, insulted, jeered, physically assaulted and unnecessarily criticised.
