REFEREES

Parklands United Sports Club is making a determined effort to ensure all games have one if not two referees who have been trained.  If your team has someone who wishes to referee (they get paid per game plus a drink in the clubrooms) please let me know – the Club is willing to put touch players through a touch referee’s course with Touch Canterbury if anyone is interested.

The core referees will be paid for each game they referee
