Gold Coast Rugby League Referees

Program Overview

The Gold Coast Academy of Sport is proud to support the efforts of the Gold Coast Rugby League Refereeing Association to recruit and retain players in the sport.  The only prerequisites are a love of the game, be 13 years or older and healthy enough to run around the football field.

The Academy offers value added presentations to participants on topics associated with performance.  It has long been known that referees need to be fitter and more active than players so with this in mind, the GCAS delivers presentations on recovery, rehabilitation, sports psychology and how to overcome the pressures of decision making, strength and conditioning and speed and technique of running.  All these areas help to develop the overall referee to improve their performance in controlling the game.
