NRG HITS THE GROUND 'RUNNING' IN 2017

The Nepean Referees Group have already planned 2 referee courses for February.
This season besides young referees, the NRG want to see retired players continuing in the game they love. If you have recently retired from playing or you have spare time we would love to see you out refereeing. This year already has seen an increase in retired players registering to become referees. Refereeing is enjoyable, rewarding and gives you great satisfaction. Imagine - 22 players, coaches, supporters all there for one reason and you have the ability to make sure the match is refereed well - what an exciting and rewarding challenge. At the Nepean Referees Group our is to ensure all matches are covered every week on every ground so to achieve this we need to ensure new referees are being trained on a regular basis. Don't delay jump online now www.nepeanrefereesgroup.com.au and fill in the "Become a Referee" form and we will be back in contact.
