Technical Officiating

Technical Officiating

Hockey Australia’s Technical Official courses operate within the Australian Sports Commission’s National Officiating Accreditation Scheme (NOAS).

The Technical Official structure focuses on delivering training programs with quality presenters/assessors, resources and ongoing professional development. These training programs develop practical technical officiating skills and self-development, and therefore better trained officials to meet the demands of the game.

Hockey Australia, together with our State and Territory Associations, recognises that quality officiating has a significant influence upon players and their hockey experience, hence the recommendation for all Technical Officials to be accredited at an appropriate level.

The Pathway
The three Technical Official accreditations are:
Level 1
Level 2
Level 3

* Level 1 – No pre-requisites
* Level 2 – Level 1 Technical Official accreditation, technical officiating experience in local competition
* Level 3 – Level 2 Technical Official accreditation, or technical officiating experience at Australian Championship level (incl. under-age)

Please contact your local State/Territory Association regarding the Level 1 and 2 Technical Official courses and contact Hockey Australia regarding the Level 3 course.
