Development & Courses
At the AFA we offer a number of referee development opportunities throughout the year for officials at all stages of their journey; from those looking to become qualified referees to those climbing the promotion ladder.

Every referee starts out at the bottom of a ladder, looking to learn and develop their skills throughout their refereeing career. Most are looking for promotion, some with modest targets; some perhaps even with the hope of eventually refereeing in a World Cup Final.
