Referee refresher held in Tahiti

The FTF technical headquarters played host to the group from Tahiti and Moorea, with the refresher aimed at reviewing the rules ahead of the second part of the Tahiti football season which runs from January to May.
A full revision of all the rules and regulations associated with football was covered in the three hour workshop, with particular attention paid to Laws 5 and 6 – the duties and powers of the referee and his assistants.
Also covered in detail were Law 12 – Fouls and Unsportsmanlike Conduct and Law 11 – The Offside – one of the more controversial, and most difficult to understand of all 17 Laws of the Game.
Fitness trainer Kader Touati concluded the session with a 30 minute talk on the food, preparation and testing required to become an international referee.
FTF CEO Reynald Temarii assured the referees present that the federation plans to strengthen its legislation and amend the bylaws in order to offer further support and protection of the arbitral body in French Polynesia.
Further to that promise, the Federation’s Referee Committee has been reinstated under the leadership of two volunteers – Alain Devienne and Jean Claude Perard.
The pair are set to run the next training session on the Laws of the Game on Monday, 3 February.
