Football referees are the third team in the game. Their job is to ensure a game is played in a fair manner. Refereeing is a great way to keep fit and get paid. Some people referee to stay in the sport. We encourage anyone who is a family member of a student at Marist to take up the whistle. In 2018 we started recruiting female referees to the Club. This initiative will continue in 2019.
Marist Canberra Football Club is keen to develop a cadre of referees for games held at Marist College. If you referee for Marist, you will be reimbursed the cost of refereeing courses. In an effort to retain and support our club referees, the club will reimburse the Capital Football annual referee registration fee. This reimbursement will be made at the end of the season, and for students, on the basis that they have refereed approximately 10 games for Marist during the season. For further advice on reimbursements, please contact the club.
