from USA Rugby:

Boulder, CO – The USA Rugby Referee Department is excited to announce the advent of online Touch Judge & Assistant Referee courses!  These courses will allow participants from all over the country to create a collaborative learning environment and become USA Rugby certified.

This is the perfect opportunity for parents, coaches, and players to get involved and to learn more about the game from anywhere in the country.

Using instructor led discussion, video clips and other course materials participants in the Touch Judge courses will learn when the ball is in touch, touch judge signals, places of throw in, positioning and seven-a-side variations.  Participants in the Assistant Referee course will learn how to adjudicate foul play, perform signaling and reporting, maintain positioning, and use communication systems.  The courses will culminate with a brief quiz to validate the participant’s certification as a USA Rugby Touch Judge or Assistant Referee.

Courses will be offered monthly and will be held on the 2nd Tuesday & Wednesday of every month at 8:00pm Eastern Time.  Each session will last approximately two hours and will be taught by an IRB certified Educator. The cost of the online Touch Judge courses will be $25, as will the Assistant Referee course.  Please note that space is limited, so sign up early!
