Get involved, become a State Leagues referee today


The likes of Kurt Ams, Kris Griffiths Jones, Stephen Lucas, Katie Louise Paterson, Kelly Jones and Sarah Ho are just some of the referees that have come through the New South Wales ranks with more set to follow in their footsteps.

Referee figures across NSW are on the rise at grassroots level meaning the jump to becoming an elite referee has really ignited as the state continues its quest to further developing its officials.

From Level 1 assessor seminars to educational evenings by current and former FFA officials, fitness tests to international exchange programs and tournaments, becoming an elite referee with the NSW State League Football Referees branch opens a window of opportunity which could see you be part of the Hyundai A-League, Westfield W-League, National Youth League and PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues in New South Wales.

The NSW State League Football Referees branch recently put together a special video promoting the step up with snapshots from elite referees in NSW as well as an interview with one of the state’s top whistleblowers, Kurt Ams.
