Referee at a Junior GameWelcome to our website which we trust is a useful resource for not only GDFRA members but referees world wide.  Your comments and suggestions are always welcomed and as such your webmaster would appreciate any feedback.

Refereeing can be an exciting and challenging position providing you with the best seat in the game.  So whether your wanting to give back something to the sport you love, earn some extra pocket money or have ambitions of refereeing local, State, National or International levels, this is where you can start.  Refereeing is not just about knowing the Laws of the Game, but also applying them correctly, understanding how the game unfolds, player management and your own personality.  It also helps to develop life skills and confidence, maintains and improves fitness levels without the bumps and bruises that players sustain.  If you are interested in becoming a referee please contact us by emailing our Secretary.

Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, during the season, at Merrylands Bowling and Recreation Club, Oxford Street, Merrylands.  The next meeting will be held at the Merrylands Bowling and Recreation Club on 13th August 2018 starting at 7.00 pm for the Juniors and 7.30 pm for all members.

Legea Member of the Month NSWSLFR - June 2017

Emma Higgins - NSWSLR June 2017 Member of the Month 







Popular NSWSLFR and GDFRA referee, Emma Higgins, was the NSW State League Referees Legea Member of the Month recipient for June; her regular smiling face at training with a constant supply of cup cakes is welcomed by her colleagues.  She is always happy and helpful to other members and the FNSW Appointments Officer by going out of her way to accept extra games.  Nothing is too much trouble for Emma and her efforts are very much appreciated by all she comes in contact with.  NSWSLFR President Robert Colombo presented Emma with a $100 Legea voucher kindly donated by Legea Australia.
