Capital Football have announced the launch of an exciting partnership with leading match official education and development organisation, Officiating Collective.
Officiating Collective is a leading provider of support, education, training and professional development skills to all sports officials at various stages of their development pathway.
The organisation was built by Managing Director and Founder Ash Synnott, with a team of specialists that have extensive knowledge and experience in the world of matchday officiating.
Synnott was excited to be partnering with Capital Football, especially with football being the largest participation sport in the ACT.
“Football is a leader in sports participation across the country, and the ability to connect with, and support so many match officials through a partnership with Capital Football is an unmissable opportunity,” Synnott said.
“We’re really looking forward to supporting Capital Football in driving a better experience for match officials, players and all stakeholders across the game”.
Capital Football CEO Phil Brown added it’s an important time to continue football’s momentum in the ACT.
“The Officiating Collective partnership will allow match officials across both football and futsal, access to development opportunities through a scholarship program that will help them develop not only as officials in sport, but assist in developing well rounded skill sets that will support them in their everyday lives.” Brown said.
“Capital Football and our Board launched the #ReduceAbuse campaign in June this year, and by supporting our match officials with training, education and development, Capital Football is showing that we are prepared to drive resources into improving the experience for our members and participants, and equipping our officials with the tools they need to excel.”
Officiating Collective will provide a series of memberships to individual match officials identified by Capital Football, along with offering educational webinars, workshops and helping to build a Capital Football Match Officials Mentoring Program across the next four years.
