NNSWF hosts 2022 State Referee Conference

February 9th, 2022

Referees who officiate on NNSWF Premier Senior and Youth competitions as well as community Zone Football League competitions are well prepared for the upcoming season after attending NNSWF’s State Referee Conference pre-season seminars.

About 200 referees attended the conference held at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility last weekend.

The event was comprised of four half-day seminars for the four groups of referees who will officiate with NNSWF this season including junior and first year referees, youth referees including members of the NNSWF Youth Referee Academy, Premier Senior Competition referees and Zone Football League competition referees.

Among the guest presenters were Football Australia General Manager Referees Mat Cheeseman, A-League and FIFA Assistant Referee Ryan Gallagher and NNSWF Referees Manager Brad Carlin.

The seminars covered educational refereeing topics such as changes to the Laws of the Game for 2021-22, handball, video incident analysis, maintaining match control while providing for entertaining football, assistant refereeing at the elite level and updates on the FA and NNSWF Referee Departments.

“The new format of holding separate seminars for our diverse group of referees so that we could give them coaching and information relevant to their different needs worked exceptionally well,” Carlin said.

“All of our referees at the conference received first class education, preparing them well for the new season.

“The seminars also provided a great opportunity for our referees to meet in a social environment and learn from each other.

“We have received fantastic praise from our referees for the success of this year’s conference and are already planning for next year’s event.”
