Seeking Interested Referees for the OZVA Referees Development Sub-Committee:
In order to facilitate further development of Oceania Referees, I will be assembling a group of current referees to assist. This group of referees will primarily serve as a developmental referee task force, focus/advisory group, as well as provide insights and feedback regarding the refereeing environment within their sub-zones and countries. This will be volunteer at-will appointments, with meetings primarily done via online video conferencing. Diversity will be emphasized with at least one member per sub-zone. In the interest of diversity, this will not be limited to Referee Commissioners or International Referees, Referees with no board positions or National Referees are allowed to apply/serve.

If you or anyone might be interested, please send a CV via e-mail to by 30NOV2020.

Thank You,
