We have been able to finalize arrangements with RAMOA to offer a referee coarse on April 16th for FREE!! Well kind of its being sponsored by RAMOA, AJRA and the Titans. As discussed at the high school meeting it is encouraged that each team send at least one adult to take the course. To register please click here. Also please read the information below and complete your laws and rugby ready course. Feel free to invite grade 11 and 12 students (They will have opportunities to ref U11 and U13 during the season). This is also an excellent coach development course.
The purpose of this introductory course is to enable match officials to acquire basic skills to officiate safe, enjoyable competition. Rugby match officiating is a great way to enjoy the comradely of the sport, while getting exercise and earning money in your spare time.
The World Rugby (WR) Level 1 Officiating course aims to create a platform for developing match officials and motivate them to collect some refereeing experience on their way. It uses elements from the WR Coaching resource to enhance the game knowledge of match officials and it uses three different modules to explain, demonstrate, practice, perform and analyze officiating skills.
These modules are:
Prerequisite: As a prerequisite to attending the Level 1 course, all registrants must complete the online WR Law Test and the online Rugby Ready Course. All registrants must bring their online WR certificates to the Level 1 course in order to be able to attend.
*If you have not done so already please ensure you have completed the World Rugby Laws & Rugby Ready on-line courses, at www.worldrugby.org, and have proof of completion e-mailed to me or bring them with you on the day. Time to complete these tests vary depending on your background — please allow several hours to complete.
Part of the course is spent outside and we would ask you bring suitable outdoor clothing & footwear. It’s a very “hands-on” course, similar to a players training session, so you will be getting dirty and there will be physical contact! Let us know at the start of the session if you cannot fully participate or have a medical condition we need to be aware of.
A whistle will be provided to you.
