Officials Course: Reaccreditation Minlaton

March 06 2023

6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Bowls SA is committed to ensuring our reaccreditation requirements for officiating are clear for all current and potential officials. We have designed a system in combination with our state and territory associations which provide the necessary development for our officials, but removes unnecessary hurdles to completing the process.

In summary, the Official Reaccreditation model is:

1. Fill out and complete a reaccreditation form and send it to your relevant state/territory association;
2. Answer questions related to the officiating duty;
3. Answer questions related to Manage Self Module;
4. Complete an On-Green Assessment.
