What We Do
We specialise in the management of match day officials for sporting leagues. We take care of all the tasks that your volunteers or committee traditionally send countless hours doing - rostering, recruiting, training and development, accreditation pathway planning and referee/umpire payments.
Who We Are
Event Horizon Sports is a Tasmanian-based business with a background across many varied sports. We are passionate about officiating and one of our primary goals is to provide the best possible professional development environment for our officials by not only having mentor programs for our younger referees and umpires but also using the latest video tools for in-season coaching. We also work closely with our people to achieve accreditation standards and progress through the professional development pathway.
