March 9th, 2016

NB: Updated 9th March 2016

Football Mid North Coast referee standing committee will reschedule two of its popular level 4 referee courses.

The South West Rocks and Taree course, the latter scheduled for March 27, will forced to be rescheduled due to a number of reasons.

FMNC will announce the new dates for these two courses when they have been confirmed via the standing committee and zone referee coordinator, Ossie Bellamy.

The response to the remaining courses was outstanding and augers well for a solid number of match officials for the upcoming season.

But, Bellamy said, it is imperative that anyone considering attending a course at one of the locations register their intentions.

“We must know in advance how many people will be attending any one of these courses so we can ensure we have enough information and resources at hand to distribute to them,” he said.

“So it is in everyone’s best interest to let us know prior to the course being held that they will be attending.”

Ossie said course participants should email to lodge their interest in one of the courses.

Prior to attending a course, participants must complete the introductory online laws of the game. These are available by going to:
