2013 CLUB REFEREE COURSE
Date Published 31Jan13 14:42
The NDSFA will once again be running a club referee course for the 2013 season. To those of you who are new, a Club Referee is a volunteer, who has received basic referee training and sits in between an official NDSRA referee and an untrained or unaccredited volunteer.
The NDSFA clubs have endorsed this program some years ago to assist clubs in easing the burden in trying to find a suitable person to referee matches where an official referee has not been appointed. Club Referees, once they’ve completed their course, passed an exam, and have been registered by a local club, can be appointed to games by their club, in the absence of an official referee. They are provided with an NDSFA club referee uniform, and are paid 50% of the scheduled fee for official referees.
Information below is for the 2013 Club Referees Course. The course is strictly limited to 35 places. A waiting list will apply once all places have been filled. If the waiting list grows to a sufficient size, a second course will be scheduled.
Dates: (Participants must attend all sessions to qualify)
7th, 14th & 21st March – Club Referee Workshops
28th March – Club Referee Exam
4th April – Results/Debrief
7pm – 9pm
Club meeting room at our office – 9/51 York Rd, Penrith
We encourage clubs to nominate adults to participate in this program so that you have club referees available to cover adult games. We also encourage younger participants who can cover junior games.
In promoting this course to your members, please consider where your referee shortfalls usually lay, and try to recruit members who’s maturity and ability to manage your shortages would best suited.
Please note, participants must have attained the age of 14 years.
If you are interested in participating in this course, please email email@example.com with your name, club, DOB, contact number and email address.
EVER WONDERED WHERE YOUR FEES GO TO?
Date Published 17Dec12 10:00AM
Fees vary from club to club and association to association. Some clubs will charge your games fees up front, some will collect these weekly and thereby reduce your initial outlay. Some will include uniform and some won’t. Some clubs are saving for special projects and may strike a levy to help fund it, while others yet, may charge you a fundraising levy and not approach you all year with fundraisers, while other clubs will run raffles every week. The combinations are endless.
But, beyond the fee that your club collects, there are other fees collected in the back-ground that you should know about. Not everything you pay to your club stays with your club, and not all fees that you pay to your club come to us. When your fees finally reach your association (head office), they also don’t stay with us 100%. Some fees are passed onto FNSW for their use, some are passed onto FFA and some go towards an accident support policy for players.
We also have a levy that goes towards supporting a pathway for elite players. This pathway is available to all players in the NDSFA who qualify through trials. The final levy we collect is called a Ground Maintenance Fund Levy. This money goes into a big bucket that is then made available to clubs in the form of a grant (criteria applies) to assist with ground maintenance repairs and improvements for emergency repairs and big ticket items.
To view a full break up of fees click on the link below. If you need more information, please see your club administrators.

N.D.S.F.A CELEBRATES THEIR HIGH ACHIEVERS FOR 2012
It’s been a fortnight of smiles & celebrations at Nepean District Soccer head office as we acknowledge & celebrate clubs and individuals who have made stand out performances within our code this year. Presentations were made at the Association’s Annual Awards Dinner and at the recent Annual General Meeting.
The Association extends its congratulations and gratitude to the following clubs & individuals:
NEPEAN F.C. HAVE A NEW WEBSITE - CHECK IT OUT!!
Our representative operations, Nepean FC, have a new website. To see all their news go to www.nepeanfc.com.au
PRESS RELEASE - 17TH OCTOBER 2012 - THE WAY FORWARD TO NEPEAN DISTRICT SFA'S REPRESENTATIVE FOOTBALLERS IN 2013
The board of Nepean District SFA met on Tuesday night to discuss the implications of the recent decision of Football NSW to reject their application for Men’s and Boys Elite Level 2 League, and instead put them in Intermediate level 1
The Association currently has an application for SAP (Skills Acquisition Program) outstanding with FNSW, which we hope will offer opportunities for players aged Under 9 to U11 inclusive. We are confident of being awarded this license.
The Association will accept Football NSW’s invitation to compete in Men’s Intermediate Div. 1, which will cater to the U16, U18 & Men’s 1st & Under 20’s Divisions.
The Association will enter the ARC (Association Representative Competition U12,13,14 & 15) in order to remain competitive and provide a continuous pathway for our players.
These opportunities, of course, are in addition to the Women’s and Girls State League teams that we already have in place.
It is our intention to re-group, rebuild and continue to move forward to a more positive future and to strive to attain a place in higher divisions of FNSW elite competitions.
