Hurlstone Park Wanderers is a community club that promotes playing football in an inclusive manner, with respect for opponents, officials, and for the love of the game.
We encourage both our junior and senior players to become qualified referees, as the numbers are constantly under pressure.
Officiating in CDSFA competitions is overseen by the Canterbury Referees Association. They administer and train all referees in the district.
If you’re interested, please visit their website to discover how you can become a referee.
We run a HPW Game Leaders program (formerly called Mini-Refs) during our Small Sided Games.
Here, junior players of the Club who are at least 12 years old during the season are encouraged to ‘learn’ how to referee a game of football.
The underlying purpose of the program is to provide non-adult instruction on game day to our youngest members in the U6 to U9 age groups.
In recognition of volunteering to undertake this important role, Game Leaders receive a small match fee, something from the BBQ, and a drink from the canteen.
A quick summary of the steps for teams to record results and Referee payments. We need these for all teams before midday on Monday, as that is the deadline for entering them (and earlier is better).
The link below lists the amount that each team will need to pay the Referees for each game, by age group and division.
Managers should have these amounts in clearly marked envelopes and pay the Referees before the game begins.
The Referees will add their ID number and signature to the match sheet. This is the information that we use to know that you have paid a Referee.
Please note the following:
The HPW 2021 Official payment submission form allows you to include details of payments for other games, including pre-season trial games and State Cup or Champion of Champions.
For pre-season games, the Club will reimburse the cost of Referees and ground hire for one external game (at another club’s field) up to a maximum of $150 per season. If you organise more games than that the cost is to be paid by the team. If the cost is greater than $150 please contact email@example.com if there are special circumstances that necessitate a higher cost. For intra-association games, notification to the Club in time for us to notify the Association is sufficient.
