USA Rugby has developed a course to bridge the gap between non-contact rugby refereeing and contact rugby refereeing. The course introduces referees to the game of rugby and skills required to provide a safe and fun game of rugby to those players participating. A special focus on safety and basics of refereeing allow participants to learn actively while focusing on key safety areas.
After the course, referees will have a strong base in rugby refereeing and be ready to shadow, assistant referee or potentially referee contact games. Additionally, referees will have access to online resources, continuing education and local mentorship to further their learning.
*We will look to hold a course after we have 5-10 participants in your area. Have your friends sign up so you can have a course faster in your area.
