Please note that a duty referee will referee with a qualified referee.
This coming week there will be a muster on Tuesday 26th April 6-7.30 pm, for the A-men’s and Women’s comp, and Thursday 28th April for the B-men’s comp.
Game fees are set at $135 per person for the season. The reduction in cost this season is due to the introduction of duty referees. Team nominations will only be accepted with a duty referee from the team listed on the form. The duty referee will referee with a qualified referee.
Duty referees will be required to referee in their own division and only when their team is rostered for duty. Training and coaching will be provided.
The muster on Tuesday night will be at the stadium from 6-7.30pm and the nomination forms can be handed in to a committee member – Paula Daniels, Amy McClendon, Olivia Howard, Amy Best, Jenny Ogle, Duane Kitamura – or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before COB Friday 29th April.
The muster will also include a showcase game of the Byron Women’s comp winners VS Ballina Women’s comp winners.
Games will commence from the 3rd May, once we have all the team nominations to complete the draw. Payments for game fees will be collected in the first three weeks of competition – from the 24th May it will be NO pay NO play.
All teams must have matching singlets with numbers on the front and the back. This is important for the referees. Penalties will be enforced if this is not the case (loss of competition points), there will be an allowance at the beginning of the season.
Duty for teams consists of two people doing the bench and one person refereeing. Loss of 3 points will be enforced if there are not three members present.
FORFEITS MUST BE IN BY 12PM on the day of competition. This must be text or called through to Duane Kitamura on 0466 332 006. A loss of 3 competition points will be given if the forfeit is after this time (as this costs the association).
