The Townsville Touch Referees Association, together with Townsville Touch Football and NQ Touch Football, have scheduled a full suite of accreditation courses for touch football referees, from foundation (Level 1) to talent (Level 3), and best of all they're FREE* TO ATTEND!
For beginner referees, and those who have never held a Touch Football Australia referee accreditation before, a LEVEL 1 course will be held on Saturday 20 March 2021.
The Level 1 accreditation requires a short online course to be completed (the Sport Australia Community Officiating General Principles course) prior to attending the four (4) hour face-to-face workshop.
Returning referees with at least twelve (12) months experience are encouraged to enrol into the LEVEL 2 course, which will be held on the same day and only requires attendance at the four (4) hour face-to-face session.
For more experienced referees, especially those interested in officiating at state and youth national representative events, a LEVEL 3 course will be held on Saturday 27 March 2021. The course is open to all current Level 2 referees who have held their accreditation for at least twelve (12) months.
Enrolment for all three accreditation courses is done via Touch Football Australia's The NEST - touchfootball.etrainu.com.
A step-by-step to creating your profile on The NEST, and enrolling in your first course, can be found on the Become a Referee page of the TTRA website.
