How do I become a Referee?

The first step to becoming a qualified Referee is to complete Level 1 of the Squash SA Referee Development Programme. This qualifies the individual as a Club Referee and includes passing the Level 1 Referee Examination (a basic general knowledge of the rules is required for this) and passing a practical assessment of the individual refereeing a match. The individual will be assigned a mentor to help them through the simple Level 1 process. This level is suitable for Juniors as well as Club Players.

A summary of the requirements for Level 1 can be found in the SSA Refereeing Requirements – Club Referee. If you would like to find out more about becoming a Referee, please contact your Provincial Referee Representative.
