The FFA Level 4 Referee course is the entry level course to officiating full field games. The Level 4 referee course is accredited by FFA. It is great way to be involved in community football, develop leadership skills, improve confidence, develop communication skills and earn some money. The Level 4 Referee qualification provides the pathway to senior and elite refereeing.
Game Leaders are encouraged to upgrade to a Level 4 Referee Qualification after gaining sufficient experience officiating Miniroos matches at their Junior Club. Capital Football Referees recommends that Level 4 Referees be 14-15 years of age.
Courses are run over a full day of classroom work and a 1 hour practical session on the Wednesday immediately after the course. The venue for the practical session will be confirmed closer to the date. If a particpant cannot attend the practical session, there is an alternative to attend another session.
The Level 4 Referee course costs $55.00 (includes Fox 40 Classic Whistle).
