Become an accredited referee! You can be assessed at the championships to become an accredited referee. Assessment is in two parts: a multi-choice written assessment and a practical assessment. There are three levels of accreditation: green, orange and grey.

The written assessment will be at 8:30pm, Friday 30 March at SA Rowing, following the referee briefing. Fee for the written assessment is $20 (covers costs of T-shirt). The written assessment takes around 30 – 40 minutes and the practical assessment is 1 or 2 games. Referees being re-assessed for upgrade do not need to re-sit the written assessment. However, upgrading referees must return their original t-shirt on award of the new grade.
