The registration process for New Referees is as follows.


If you are 13 years of age or older you are eligible to apply to become a referee.

There are four levels to the refereeing accreditation process. New entrants begin by completing their level 4 certificate.

In order to complete the level 4 certificate, a new applicant must complete an online course. The following link takes you to Football Federation Australia’s (FFA) website where new referees can complete the first part of the accreditation process:

Go to the Online referee course

Having completed this module, the applicant will receive the Laws of the Game (LOTG) certificate. The LOTG certificate does not make you eligible to referee. You must complete a series of seminars and coaching sessions in order to be eligible to referee.

The accreditation seminars are conducted by the FSC Referees Council and are a nationally recognised course. Once you have completed the course you will be fully registered as a FSC Referee.

 The dates of these Courses are yet to be confirmed.
