Referee assessor course ends successfully

The course was organised by the FIFA Referee Assistance Program (RAP) team for the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) and conducted by Massimo Raveino (FIFA Referee Assistance Program Referee Development Officer for Oceania) and Neil Poloso (FIFA Referee Assistance Program team member).
The course covered the process and guidelines for assessing the performance of match officials during matches for the purpose of improving the quality of refereeing through feedback from the assessors.
The course was held over 2 days at the Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) academy complex in Honiara starting on Saturday and also included a practical session at Lawson Tama stadium where the participants assessed the performance of the match officials in the grand final match of the Our Telekom National U-20 Championship.
Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) Referee Development Officer, Justin Mutukera, commended the FIFA RAP team from OFC for organising the course for Solomon Islands referee assessors.
“From today Solomon Islands now has 13 referee assessors that are qualified at the OFC level. In the past there used to be only 1 so this is a proud day for refereeing and I thank the FIFA RAP team members for their hard work,” Mutukera said.
The completion of the course means that the participants are now able to officiate as referee assessors in OFC organised competitions including the O-League.
Two referees from Papua New Guinea travelled over to attend the course along with the 13 local participants.
The FIFA RAP team from OFC will remain in the country for the FIFA Follow-up Elite Refereeing course which started today.
