Referee at PPT

Over recent years Princes Park Touch has grown by over 50% and we are now the largest single night of touch in the state. However without referees there is no touch so it is vital for us to be able to support our players 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. We also like to keep is social so every Wednesday after the last game we provide refreshment and food to our referees (typically a bbq over Summer and Pizza over Winter).

How to become a referee?

The first step is to do a refereeing course. A list of courses is available here:

Upcoming referee courses

Princes park touch will pay for the course and its durations is approximately 4 hours, and once you have done the course you can begin refereeing with a buddy (and getting paid). Once you have sufficient experience I will assess you and award you your level one refereeing badge and you will be a qualified referee!
