While it's not for everyone, refereeing is an extremely rewarding experience for many people. Referees are considered some of Touch Football's most dedicated and highly regarded participants.
Referees are managed by the Townsville Touch Referees Association Inc. (TTRA), who also make match payments to each referee who officiates matches during the season. For a young referee, the money at the end of the season can be very rewarding!
Apart from getting some extra pocket-money before Christmas, attending a referees course is a great way to learn the rules of touch football, and can aid players in their understanding of the game.
All referees of junior Touch Football matches in Townsville are required to possess (as a minimum) a Level One Touch Football Referee accreditation from Touch Football Australia
