About

The world of sports officiating has never been more important to the success of sports. Whether facilitating elite competitions or nurturing safe environments for grassroots player development, better officiating leads to the overall quality of sport.


The National Officiating Summit seeks to facilitate the growth and health of sports officiating into the future. As Australia’s only dedicated event for the industry, the National Officiating Summit is the first time that officials from all sporting disciplines and levels will meet in person. 

Our goal is to create the best platform for sports officials and their administrators to share and connect to improve the industry.
