Delegate Duties

OPTION 1 – COMPLETE TEAM DELEGATE DUTIES
Teams must complete all allocated team delegate duties during the season. The team delegate must be prepared to take the field and actively referee their duties which will be either immediately before or after your game. Strict penalties apply if you don’t not complete your referee duties. Touch Football WA runs regular level 1 referee courses throughout the year and a schedule of courses is available at www.touchfootballwa.com.au.

OPTION 2 – PAY TO NOT COMPLETE TEAM DELEGATE DUTIES
Teams can pay to not complete team delegate duties and pay $350 to cover the costs of the club providing more referees. You will have the option to select this during the nomination process.

Adult Team – 11 Players – $1850 per team
