The Football NSW Referee Academy has been set up to assist and prepare selected referees for success at National Titles and to potentially be identified by FFA as future A-League, W-League and NYL Referees, to be part of the National Talent Pool.
The Football NSW Referee Academy trains and prepares selected referees for success at state and national levels and to be potentially identified by Football Australia as future W-League and A-League referees and assistant referees.
Referees selected to join the Academy will be provided with speed and agility training, physical training programs, opportunities to attend tournaments, match day coaching and access to national and international referee coaches as well as W-League and A-League referee mentors.
How do I apply?
Trial dates for the Academy will be listed shortly and you will be able to register through this page.
Trials for the Academy are open to all female and male match officials who currently referee within NSW, and are aged between 16 – 21 years old.
The Football NSW Referee Academy is a free program.
