The A grade referee school for 2019 has just wrapped up with 11 of our Frankston referees invited to attend.

The course was run over 3 sessions of theory which comprised of advanced rule knowledge and positioning as well as deeper look at game management, effective communication, game administration, screening and post play, awareness and leadership.

The course also touches on the 24 second and other more advanced rule situations to help prepare the referees to continue their careers on elite competitions such as MUVJBL, Big V and National competitions.

In addition to the 3-week theory course referees have also had to complete an advanced rules exam, fitness test and complete their on-court assessments on the top A Grade domestic competitions held at Frankston throughout the week.

I would like to congratulate the following referees who have so far successfully completed all requirements of the course and have now received their A Grade Referee Qualification.

  • Max Peters
  • Josh Trickey
  • Bridget Pawsey
  • Steve Lincoln
  • Bill Allars
