Don’t be safe in here.# #“This is the time to make mistakes and correct them so that when we get into our office – which is out there on the field during the matches – we can perform well and ensure the games are safe and fair.”# #Hester thanked the participants for showing their commitment to development, and Fiji FA for hosting the course.# #“We have this course every year for you referees so that you can maintain or continue to improve yourself as a referee or assistant referee,” said Fiji FA CEO Bob Kumar, while officially opening the course on behalf of the president, Rajesh Patel.# #“You are here for a purpose and the purpose is to upgrade your skills, upgrade your performances and your knowledge,” he said.# #“We know referees play a very important role in any event, any tournament and any match and to go further, it can be said that referees either make it or break it.
