Why should you become an AFA Referee? We need you! We can't have games without Referees. More importantly, Refereeing is a fun, exciting way to be involved with Futsal. Not only do you get to be involved in the fastest and most exciting sport, but it’s a great way to meet new and interesting people.
Referees are critical to Futsal - the game can't be played without them. The Referee's job is to be the official in charge of the game. They are the independent arbiter and manager of the game. Their authority extends to everyone at the court, including players, substitutes, team officials, spectators, and even the Second Referee.
The Referee's number one concern is to keep the game as safe as possible for the players. While there is risk in all sports, the Referee is responsible for minimising such risks from court conditions, equipment, spectators, and the players. The Referee is responsible for enforcing the Laws of the Game in such a way as to keep the game safe, fair and fun for everyone: the players, the coaches, the spectators and themselves.
Referees interfere with the game as little as possible, avoiding making calls for doubtful and trifling offences. Referees only make calls for offences they are sure occurred. We want our players to continue to play, and they keep playing as long as it is fun. Referees learn that fun Futsal varies from age group to age group of players. Our Referee Courses will teach you the fundamentals of the Referee’s involvement in the game
