Want to become a rugby referee or interested in understanding more about the game? Why not book yourself on a referee course.
The Old Mutual Wealth Kids First Refereeing Children course has been designed specifically for those who wish to start their refereeing the Under 7's to Under 13's. This course will provide you with a solid basis on which you can continue to build and improve your skills as a referee.
The England Rugby Refereeing Award Course is for developing referees wanting to referee the 15-a-side game and will equip candidates with the skills and confidence to do so effectively. It is delivered using a mixture of practical and classroom based activities.
