Aside from the enjoyment of playing, a key role in any football match is that of the referee, in fact no referee, no game. We struggle yearly to ensure we have enough referees at Durbanville to officiate in matches from under 7 to Senior levels, thus allowing coaches and players to focus on their games.
The CTTFA also mandates assistant referees for our First team matches, which we need to provide. The m ore qualified referees we have, the easier it is the share the load.
We would like to encourage everyone to qualify as a referee, it is rewarding to understand the rules and seeing the game from another perspective. For those players and parents, who playing days are behind them, even more reason to get qualified to take the whistle.
The CTTRA (Referees Association) run referees course and then organise the required examinations to qualify / certify as a CTTFA referee.
The next referees course commences on Monday 15th February at the Referees HQ in Milton Road in Goodwood. Should you wish to register for the course, or need more information, please contact John Ross on 082-909-9528.
