Dear Referees, Assessors & Instructors,

Over the last two seasons FFV has provided a branch management structure to provide sufficient resources to support the recruitment, retention & education of referees across metropolitan & regional Victoria. This structure has provided referees with improved opportunities to develop their refereeing. Most notably, in the last three years referee registrations have grown by over 42% with more than 1350 referees, assessors & instructors now registered with FFV.
The branch management structure in 2018 will provide continual support to referees.
