Capital Football are now accepting applications from referees aged 15 to 18 who would like to be considered for the 2017 Kanga Cup Referee Youth Academy (KCRYA).
The 2017 KCRYA will be held in Canberra from Saturday 1 July 2017 to Saturday 8 July 2017 with selected referees and referee coaches being housed at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) during this period.
Up to 50 international, interstate and local referees will be selected for the Academy and will receive intensive coaching and mentoring with a strong focus on developing referees in a tournament environment in the 15 to 18 age bracket. There is no better week in the year for young developing referees, male and female, serious about improving their skills and moving to the next level.
Selected applicants will referee each day (Monday to Friday), be involved in on field and class room style seminars with current and former FIFA Referees, be involved in learning opportunities during feedback sessions with referee coaches and make new friends in a supportive environment.
Further information and applications about the KCRYA can be made online here, with the first round of applications closing on 28 February 2017.
