The Umpiring committee are submitting a proposal to the management committee next weekend to give a 10%(approximate) pay rise to all refs. If approved this would be a nice surprise for the start of this season.
There are plans to increase the pay rate even further by voluntary participation in a Referees Champion program targeted at those driven to achieve official recognition for their efforts(accreditation levels). This program is still being developed at the moment.
The WBA is always looking for new refs. Clinics are ran frequently and refs are expected to attend. A beginners course is scheduled for next week before the start of Summer season. If you or someone you know is interested please inbox us for more details.
