Wellers Hill Physiotherapy is proud to continue our long association with the Tarragindi Tigers in the role of silver sponsor for the 2014 season.
I would like to introduce Dean Hargest – no doubt a familiar face to fellow club players and members.
In Dean’s words
“ I love the world game and have played for over 30 years at a high level.”
He now enjoys refereeing in the Brisbane Premier League competitions and is also a physiotherapist for the match day officials at Hyundai A-League matches. This extensive association keeps him fit and connected to the game.
Dean enjoys working with local football teams developing warm up programs, core stability and improving running and movement technique. These roles also provide injury prevention and management strategies as well as return to sport protocols.
Dean is currently attending Tues training nights in his capacity as coach of a junior girls’ team and also in his role as a physiotherapist advising the Senior Mens’ team with injuries and high performance.
Dean is available at the Tarragindi Tigers Tuesday night training for advice on injuries. He also works Wednesday and Friday at Wellers Hill Physiotherapy. Ph 3892 7501
So if you need further advice and treatment for your injuries please do not hesitate to contact Dean, Kath or Melissa at Wellers Hill Physiotherapy.
Football Brisbane is pleased to announce the Football Queensland Club Referee Programme to be introduced in Brisbane.The proposal has been introduced to address two major concerns over the lack of accredited and registered Match officials to cover all matches at senior and junior levels. The club or volunteers then need to fill in often without adequate knowledge or interpretation of the Laws of the Game.With Football Queensland we propose to support this programme to educate and officially recognise the volunteer officials and in the future develop a communication method to appoint these persons to scheduled matches.The programme is not an alternative to obtaining qualified referees or to take a way the integrity of the accreditation but to look at other options to increase our referee numbers and it is hoped that this programme will encourage more people into the comprehensive referee community programmes currently provided by the zone with a full development support network.There will be two programmes launched:
1. Club Referee Programme
2. Club Assistant Programme (already launched in Brisbane)
Online Laws of the Game
The online Laws of the Game resource tool, gives an interactive access to the Laws of the Game including videos, workbooks, exams and procedures with interpretations and additional information and details on how to become an officially appointed referee. There is an exam at the end and successful participants will receive a certificate identifying they have demonstrated awareness in the Laws of the Game.
There will be two course Workshops.
1. Assistant Referee Course (3 hrs)
2. Club Referee Course (7 hrs)
Once you have obtained your Laws of the Game certificate you can then register for one of the Workshops.
The dates for the courses are as follows.
§ Sunday, 15th June at Tarragindi Tigers - Holland Park High School, Bapaume Rd, Holland Park.
Check in time is 9.00am for a 9.15am START. Finish time is 4.15pm for the Club Referee Course, and a 12.30pm finish for Club Assistant Workshop.
To register, click on the relevant links below.
The content is identical to the Accredited Level 4 Referee Course but without the practical assessments.
Completion of the Workshop
On completion of the workshop the zone will arrange for formal certification from Football Queensland and this will be forwarded to all successful applicants who completed the Workshop and their nominated club will be notified.
Football Queensland will cover the cost of the courses Free of Charge.Each club who conduct one of these Workshops at their venue will be provided with the following for the use of their Club accredited Referees.
1. A set of two flags
2. A Whistle
3. A wallet that included Red and Yellow Card and score pad
4. Club Referee or Club Assistant Referee shirt to each individual
APPOINTMENT to Games
The club based Referee (CBR) or club based Assistant (CBA), would only be required to officiate at their club if, an accredited Match official was not appointed to a game. In this regard the club will be responsible to appoint such club based referees or assistants.
We remind the clubs that the confirmed spread sheet is placed on the Football Brisbane website every Thursday evening and found on www.footballbrisbane.com.au > REFEREES > MATCH APPOINTMENTS
This is so clubs can see where officials have been unable to be appointed.A Club based referee must be 18 years or over to officiate an unallocated Senior Men or Ladies game.
They can also run lines should they or the club require them to do so in support of a duly appointed and accredited Football Brisbane match official and wear the supplied Club based Referee uniform.
Payment of Club based referees and their assistants will be at the club discretion and capped at a maximum of 50% of the local applicable fee for that level of match.
