Become a Referee: The best-kept secret in football

Refereeing is a tremendous part-time job that pays well, keeps you fit and builds valuable life skills. It’s a great way to stay involved in our game but also has potential to become a genuine career path.

FV and SSV are thrilled to offer our Refereeing Academy program to students who are aged between 15 and 18.

Our program will take you through the Level 4 Refereeing Course, which includes an online component that teaches the laws of the game and a practical component, where students will be trained by a qualified instructor out on the pitch.

You’ll have full support from Football Victoria’s Referees Department which boasts experienced referees who have officiated on some of the biggest stages in the world, including the Women’s World Cup, the Olympics and the European Champions League.

At the end of the course, students will be fully qualified to referee games and will be given opportunities to officiate school games.
