In 2020, Northside Wizards established an Officials’ Hall of Fame to recognise the long term service of its referees, technical officials and supervisors. The Officials’ Hall of Fame recognises three tiers of service:
Gold – 20 or more years
Silver – 15-19 years
Bronze 10-14 years
The game does not operate without our officials, and it’s not an easy job at times for them to do, so to service the association for a decade or more is an achievement worth celebrating! Read more about our dedicated officials below..
