Development

We are very lucky at VBRA Knox to have such a great group of supervisors, lead by the wisdom and highly recognised knowledge of our Adviser, Anthony Aulsebrook. Our branch is also fortunate enough to take a group away every year on a Referee Development Camp, where we ran our theory component of the A grade course, as well as conducting activities for the other members that attend, creating an educational and fun learning environment over the Melbourne Cup long weekend.
