GUIDE TO CLUBS WHEN ASSESSING A REFEREE'S PERFORMANCE

The mark awarded by a Club must be based on the Referee's overall performance. It is most important that the mark is awarded fairly and not based upon isolated incidents or previous games. The Referee's performance should be determined by the table below which should act as a guide for the overall mark which should fall within the mark range for each standard of performance.

Mark Range Comment
86-100 The Referee demonstrated very accurate decision-making and controlled the game very well using management and communication skills effectively to add value to the game.
76-85 The Referee demonstrated accurate decision-making and controlled the game well using management and communication skills to contribute positively to the game.
61-75 The Referee demonstrated reasonably accurate decision-making and despite some shortcomings generally controlled the game well.
60 & below The Referee demonstrated shortcomings in the accuracy of decision- making and control which affected the game.
  • Using a scale of up to 100 allows greater flexibility for Clubs to distinguish between different refereeing performances more accurately. A mark within each mark range can be given to reflect the referee's performance e.g. a mark of 79 indicates a somewhat better performance than a mark of 71.
  • A mark between 71 and 80 represents the standard of refereeing expected.
  • While some Referees may have below average performances, there will usually have been some positive aspects of their performance, so extremely low marks should be very rare.
  • When Club officials are marking a Referee, they should always look at the game as a whole and not isolated decisions. The result of the match should not influence the mark and disciplinary action should be judged objectively.
  • When a mark of 60 or lower is awarded, an explanation must be provided to the Competition. The purpose of this is to assist Referees to improve their performance levels, so the comments should be as helpful as possible.
  • Even where a referee has significant shortcomings there will have been some positive aspects which should be given credit; extremely low marks (below 20) should be very rare.

Final Thoughts:

  • Always try to be objective when marking. You may not obtain the most objective view by marking immediately after the game.
  • Judge the performance over the whole game. Don’t be too influenced by one particular incident.
