Referees

Player/Referees

It is an obligation of all teams in nominated competitions within the Manly Warringah Football Association (MWFA) that they provide a minimum of two qualified referees, registered with the Manly Warringah Football Referees association (MWFRA).

Each round the home team is to have one of their official registered referees, officiate the game before, if playing at 3pm or the game after, if playing at 1pm.

Monitoring and penalty program

Any written reports received by the MWFA or incomplete or incorrect referees cards will be handled in the following manner.

  • Where a written report is received by the MWFA that a team or teams did not have an official referee (this includes referees not in correct or complete uniform).

  • Where the name on the referee’s card is not an official referee registered with the MWFRA.
  • Where a team has substituted someone else in for their official referee.
