Referee Hints and Tips

At FFA, we appreciate the amount of time and effort our community Officials dedicate to growing the game of Football.

During our time liaising with a large number of Officials, we've identified some key topics where advice is often sought after.

An official that is skilled in these key areas in combination with having a great understanding of the Laws of the Game is able to provide an enjoyable and professional experience to all involved. We encourage all Referees to read into the topics below:

Dealing with Conflict


Health and Fitness

Mental Strength
