Want to become a Referee?

Are you playing football but also want to earn some extra cash on weekends? Why not learn the Laws of the Game and become a Referee?

There is a Level 4 Referee Courses being run by the NCF Referees. It is being held in Coffs Harbour on the 5th & 6th of March.

Referees are an essential part of our game and as a club it is imperative that we develop as many Officials as possible. These courses are one way to ensure every opportunity is provided for the Zone to develop and register new Referees.

Mums, sisters, and female players 17 years and older - WE WANT YOU!!

It has been a number of years since Sawtell has had a Women's team in the comp, but this year we will be hoping to kickoff the 2016 Season with a Women's 2nd or 3rd Division side.

The Sawtell Football Club has such a large number of girls coming through the age groups, and the club is super keen to provide an avenue for these players as they reach beyond the 16s age group. Rather than lose them to other clubs or give up the game entirely once they hit 17 years of age.

We are currently looking for any female players 17 years or older (no experience necessary) to join our Women's team. We want this team to start out as a fun social team, with the intent of eventually building it up into a more competitive Women's playing group over the coming years (they say Rome wasn't built in a day - but we need to make a start now for the girls currently coming through the 12s, 14s and 16s age groups).

SO, if there are any mums, sisters, aunts, or any players that have been thinking about having a go at playing, working on a bit of fitness, and have some fun in a team and club environment, let us know!

Online registrations have commenced and teams must be nominated to North Coast Football by 28th February 2016. So to express your interest or to ask any question simply email or call Rod Simpson on rsimpson@bbv.com.au or 0401 197 429.

Help us create a pathway for our junior girls players for the years ahead. They are loving their football now, lets help them to love it in years to come!
