Referee Courses

Would you like to be a referee for Gungahlin United?

If you would like more information about becoming a referee within out club, you can email referees@gufc.org.au

Throughout the year we are pleased to work with Capital Football on ensuring we have plenty of referees to cover our games.  Without a ball, a field, a goal and a referee, there’s no point turning up for a game right? Right.  Which means our referees are very important to us.

Please see a list of referee courses that have already been held in 2020.  We will continue to keep this page updated with more courses as they become available.
