The course costs $40 per person which is payable on the first day. This contributes to the cost of your Laws of The Game (LOTG), course notes and refreshments during the course. The course will be run by former FIFA referee and AFC Develpment Officer for Women's Referees, Jennie Bray.
Some clubs pay this on behalf of their members to encourage people to take up refereeing - check with your club.
