Referees

Referees play an important part in the culture of Balmain Juniors, ensuring our game is played in a fair, safe and enjoyable environment for everyone. If you are interested in having fun, getting fit, making new friends, or earning some money, consider being a referee.

If you are a new referee or just want to learn how to ref touch footy, we are able to provide coaching and support. Referees are allocated to games according to their experience and skill so don’t be afraid to have a go.

Referees can be all ages with refs as young as 14 officiating during our Monday Spring comp at Timbrell Park, both males and females are encouraged to get involved. All referees are paid for each game depending on their accreditations.

Balmain Juniors conducts a level 1 referee course for new referees before the start of the competition, usually in August each year. We also have a development program for referees seeking accreditation to officiate at the Junior State Cup and other representative competitions.
