If you do not complete the workbook you cannot complete the course. On the second night will be an exam and then on the third night registration with our referee association, a quick practical session and issue of uniforms will happen.
The Gala Day will be first exposure to the games and it is a fun day, we will have coaches on all fields assisting with guidance and feedback on all games. This also is compulsory to attend.

There are costs associated with the course which are payable upfront:
Course fee $50 (refundable from your football club – CPFC supports this inititative, once you have completed the course contact the treasurer)
Registration fee to Referee Association: $60
Uniform fee: $70

The uniform will consist of a shirt, shorts, socks, whistle and a notepad. There is a requirement for black or nearly black boots to be worn, a wristwatch with stopwatch facilities will be needed also, mobile phones or handheld stopwatches are not allowed. Normal football boots of varying colours are not permitted.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the course.
