org/?language=ENThe course will be mostly outdoors so dress appropriately. You will be given a whistle at the course. Lunch will be provided (Subway) but you can bring your own if desired. Please bring water in any case.The course will cost $100 and $50 if you are a full time student. Rugby Canada requires that you register online so please do that asp. The registration link/reference is https://coach.rugbycanada. ca/index.php?page=33I would still like to know your intention so please email me separately once you register. We used to issue you a paper based law book but currently we expect you to download the law book app from World Rugby to your cell phone or laptop/ipad. The course is not about laws in any case but is intended to help you referee a match, so the emphasis will be on identifying when to stop play (blow the whistle) and how to restart play after each stoppage. We also teach you how to use advantage.My suggestion is that prior to the course you should think about this based on your current rugby knowledge.We look forward to your upcoming participation.
