Target Audience: fencers who have no experience refereeing (or limited club level experience). Must be 15 years or older. All participants must be licenced with FencingSA. The course is not suitable for parents or club admins who have never fenced before - there will be a level of assumed knowledge that comes with having been on the piste, and been refereed. 

NOTE: This course is not intended for referees that already hold a formal qualification (such as AFF, AFC, or FIE), nor referees that do not hold a formal qualification, but would be considered competent. If you are not sure - please contact communications@fencingsa.org.au 

 - Introduction to Refereeing 
- General rules and penalties
- Refereeing epee

- Review of Day 1
- Refereeing foil 

Assessment: those wishing to be assessed (and therefore eligible to referee at State level tournaments) must be available on Sunday 2 April 2023 to undertake a practical assessment at the U9/U11/U13 competition. This assessment will involve refereeing both foil and epee events while being observed. 

What to Bring:
Fencing gear if you are a fencer (it will help with practical exercises)
Water to drink (CSFC does have also drinks available for purchase)
Pen and paper for taking notes
