Technical Official

Hockey Australia’s Technical Official courses operate within the Australian Sports Commission’s National Officiating Accreditation Scheme (NOAS).
The Technical Official structure focuses on delivering training programs with quality presenters/assessors, resources and ongoing professional development. These training programs develop practical Technical Officiating skills and self-development, and therefore better trained officials to meet the demands of the game.


Hockey Australia together with our State and Territory Associations recognise that quality officiating has a significant influence upon players and their hockey experience, hence the recommendation for all Technical Officials to be accredited at an appropriate level.
