The meeting is typically given on opening day by the referee coordinator. You typically get a whistle and a black T-shirt with the word “Referee” written in white on it which is normally supplied by the club. A rule book may be supplied as well. Team referees normally referee 5 games per season. The home team provides the ref for games. Visiting team refs DO NOT ref.
