REFEREEING

It’s easy to become a rugby referee and it comes with a shiny whistle! But it also comes with a huge amount of respect and appreciation.

Become a Referee

 

We love them: When rugby referees run out onto the field everyone is glad to see them

If you have played rugby in the past you’ll find refereeing both challenging and rewarding. It will keep you fit and involved with the game. If you are new to the game a refereeing course will give you all the information you need. You can referee and play for a team. Or, as a parent, you can help out by refereeing matches on a Sunday, rather than just standing on the touchline. You can take a course for refereeing children, which takes three hours, or a course for refereeing the 15-a-side game, which will give you the confidence and competence and takes 12 hours.

 

Whichever level you decide you want to referee, there will be lots of help and advice and colleague support. And if you have ambitions to take it all the way, you could be refereeing at a Rugby World Cup one day.
