COACHES - REFEREES - UMPIRES

Becoming a Queensland Referee

Registered players interested in becoming a Queensland Referee are required to contact the QIBA Inc Secretary who will notify the Chairman of Referees to indicate their interest and request examination.

The Referees exam comprises two parts: an oral exam of 35 questions and a measuring exam.

Becoming an Australian Umpire

Registered players interested in becoming an Australian Umpire are required to contact the QIBA Inc Secretary or Chief Umpire to indicate their interest and request examination.

The Umpires exam comprises three parts: a written exam of 50 questions which is a take home exam that you have one week to complete, a 35 question multiple choice examination and a measuring exam.  The multiple choice questions and measuring examination are usually conducted on the same day.

Becoming an Australian Measurer

Registered players interested in becoming an Australian Measurer are required to contact the QIBA Inc Secretary or Chief Umpire to indicate their interest and request examination.

The Measurers exam comprises two parts: a 11 question multiple choice examination and a measuring exam.  The multiple choice questions and measuring examination are usually conducted on the same day.

Queensland Referees are encouraged to become Australian Measurers as they are only required to have knowledge of a very limited number of rules and the standard of the measuring performed of Queensland Referees is very high.  This assists Queensland in providing the required number of officials for the Australian Championships.

Becoming a Qualified Coach

Individuals wishing to become a qualified Coach are to get their Association Secretary to apply in writing to the QIBA Inc Secretary, who will forward the request to Chairperson of Coaching.  Associations will be notified of a date for a Coaching Course, to be attended by all applicants.

Successful completion of the course is assessed by qualified Coaches at the Coaching Course.  Results are sent to the Australian Sports Commission for accreditation.  Recertification is required to be renewed every 4 years.

Requesting a Coaching Clinic

Associations wishing to have a Coaching Clinic are to apply in writing to the QIBA Inc Secretary, giving an estimated number of interested people wishing to be coached.  A minimum of 3 months notice is required.
