For officials


Being good in Officiating is a strong motivating factor to remain in the sport and if officials see that they are not progressing, this can discourage their involvement. Effective officiating relies upon knowledge, skills and experience. Learning and development requirements cannot be overlooked and training programs must be relevant.  Sports official training is necessary to pass on the required standard of technical knowledge, including the rules and customs of their sport, but also to acquire the mental and personal skills that will help an official interact more effectively with others.  Decision making ability, communication, and self-confidence are key skills that an official must develop.
