Referee Info

Referee Information 

Taringa Rovers Soccer FC

Are there referee's for your Junior Divisional, Senior Men's or Senior Women's Game?

Referees are initially appointed by Football Queensland  If FQ cannot provide all 3 required refs for a game then Taringa is grateful to be assisted by a volunteer who endeavours to arrange Club Referees for the game.  

Club Referees

A great opportunity to get outdoors, watch some football and make new friends. Taringa Rovers look for 2 types of Club Referees:

  •          Club Assistant Referees run “lines” on all U12 and older games (you must be 13+; all ages welcome)
  •          Club Centre Referees are “in the middle with a whistle” (all ages welcome).

We also need experience: so players please joinus

The U9-U12 referees are called "Instructing Referees" (TRSFC Club Refs are club players usually between 13-16yrs old), their role is to "instruct players in the correct way to play the game and help them enjoy the game". There are no linesman, which means it is impossible to make the right call all the time; and they do not hand out red/yellow cards should a player /parent behave inappropriately. In no instance should our TRSFC referees have to confront aggressive behaviour from team officials/parents.

We are totally committed in supporting our TRSFC Club referees and have introduced Ground Officials for all home matches. The role of the Ground Officials is to support the referees, should they feel intimidated/threatened in anyway. We ask that they keep an eye on proceedings and if inappropriate behaviour continues either on the field/the sidelines to address it with the coaches/field coordinators.

Referees will hand out a vest to a team parent prior to kick-off, these must be returned to the bottom field shed at the end of the game. We encourage all parents to share this responsibility and take turns. We do appreciate your support with this initiative.

Referee Payment 

Taringa Rovers Soccer FC

Football Queensland referees are paid directly by FQ.

Club referees are paid by eft by submission of the form provided by the Referee Co-ordinator.

Managers are to email their age-group co-ordinator if the advertised referees do not turn up to the games so that the club can check it is not being charged.
