PPT Referees - Winter 2018

Referee at PPT

Over recent years Princes Park Touch has grown by over 60%. However without referees there is no touch so it is vital that we bring new referees into our comp.

We make a point of paying our referees very well and we believe we have the best environment to play and referee in Victoria so if you are interested in refereeing with us please contact me:

Refereeing is a great way to keep fit, make friends, earn money and it will improve your touch.

Refereeing is totally compatible with playing, in fact uniquely the majority of the referees at PPT also play on the same night and are amongst the best players in the organisation.

At PPT our referee program ensures our referees are the best looked after in Victoria. Not only do we pay better than any other competition, but we also pay for all courses and most importantly we keep it social such that every week after the last game we provide refreshments and food to our referees (typically a BBQ over Summer and Pizza over Winter).

How to become a referee?

The first step is to let us know and we will buddy you up with experienced referee to show you the ropes, you will be paid for your time while you learn.

Princes Park Touch will pay for the course and its durations is approximately 4 hours. Having done the course and demonstrating sufficient experience I will assess you and award you your level one refereeing badge and you will be a fully qualified referee!
