BV TOC ACCREDIDATION POLICY - RETURNING LOCAL ASSOCIATION REFEREES
Any local association referee who has not refereed for a period less than twelve (12) months returns with a grading they held when they left.
Any local association who has not refereed for a period greater than twelve (12) months, and wishes to again referee, will need to satisfy the following criteria:
• Complete a TOD-approved theory test and achieve a pass mark relevant to the respective referee level they will be assessed at (per the TOC Referee Competencies Document); and
• Be assessed on 1-3 local association games relevant to the level being assessed (per the Referee Competencies Document) by the Referee Advisor of the affiliated association or a TOC approved and accredited Referee Coach.
Once the TOD Theory and Practical components have been satisfactorily completed, the Referee Advisor / Referee Coach will recommend / approve an appropriate level for the Referee, being the level they previously obtained or lower.
