The Junior Emerging Talent Squad (JETS) was established in January 2007 to provide a pathway for youth referees, our stars of the future. This program is for referees that display the potential to progress to the elite level and will underpin referee participation at youth events at a local, state and national level.
The JETS program is an initiative of Queensland Touch Football and the Queensland Referee Management Team, who saw the need to identify young referees that demonstrate the ability to become one of Queensland’s best referees.
The key objective of the JETS program is to provide a structured pathway for young referees to achieve their goals with the help of coaching and support from other referees, coaches, players and mentors. The program provides the opportunity for junior referees to participate at Queensland’s Youth Academy Camp held in February annually.
