REFEREES MAKE THE GAME HAPPEN

WHAT IS THE SHOALHAVEN TIGERS REFEREE PROGRAM?

Becoming a referee is the perfect way to develop your understanding of the game. Give back to the game you love while developing life skills. Plus, you’ll meet great people and earn money along the way!

All SBA members are encouraged to participate in a ‘Level 0 Community Referee Course’ to learn the basics. From there, you can referee domestic games for fun and fitness or follow the referee pathway all the way to the Olympics.

Yes. Refereeing is a great way to earn extra cash while doing something you love. Referees are paid up to $15 – $30 per game depending on their experience level.
