Football referees are the third team in the game. Their job is to ensure that a football match is played in a fair manner and in accordance with the laws of the game. The MCFC values and supports their referees – we could not play football without you!
We encourage anyone who is a Marist student, family member or football community member to take up the whistle. We especially invite female referees to join us here at Marist.
The benefits of being a referee at Marist:
- Earn some money – fees range from $10 right up to $50 for each game that you referee.
- Stay active and fit, whilst having fun.
- Develop confidence, and great leadership and communication skills.
- Be part of a positive and supportive group of referees who all love football.
- Receive training and mentoring from our experienced Referee Coordinators.
- Be reimbursed for your annual referee registration fee at the end of the season if you’ve refereed 10 or more games for Marist.
Types of referees:
- Game Leader – the first step for those aged 13-14 to learn the fundamentals. Game Leaders officiate MiniRoos games and act as assistant referees (linesperson) for the older age groups.
- Football Referee – for persons aged 14 and above. Depending on experience and age these referees are involved in games at all levels of the club.
