On behalf of the TRRA and the Referee Advancement & Training Organization (RATO), it is my pleasure to announce the final round of promotions for 2015.

TRRA would like to thank all the referees, mentors, coaches, and teams for their commitment to improving the game of rugby. Please join us in recognizing the hard work of the following referees who have been promoted:

C4 to C3

TRU Summit AR CourseRATO hosted a Level 1, Level 2 and Coaching of Match Officials referee certification courses in August 2015 in conjunction with the TRU Summit. Last year we held our largest course with 17 attendees. The course at the Summit had a record 19 attendees!

As always, participants from each course were able to work on their particular coursework with live teams at the Summit. This hands on experience was reported as the best part of the course. We saw a wide spectrum of rugby enthusiasts that all want to give back to the game by picking up the whistle. Please welcome the newest additions to the TRRA team:
