New Referees Course

August 24, 2020 in News

The Leinster Rugby Referees New Referees Course will take place on Saturday, October 10th in Dublin at a venue to be confirmed. This will consist of a workshop where new referees will learn about the fundamentals of refereeing.

Why take up refereeing?

Refereeing is a fantastic way to stay involved in the game, whether you are a former player or coach of any level. It is a great way to stay fit while also enjoying games from the best seat in the house. There is a lively social element within the Leinster Rugby Referees as well as development pathways for those referees who show the potential and dedication to progress.

What happens after I complete the course?

Once you complete the course you immediately become a trial member of the Leinster Rugby Referees. You will gain experience refereeing age-grade games and touch judging at a higher level and you will also receive mentoring along the way. There are also three follow up workshops which will deal with key aspects of refereeing in greater detail.

I’m a full member now, what next?

Once you become a full member you will continued to be mentored and evaluated and you will be appointed to referee games suitable for your ability. Some referees may be identified as having potential for further progression and will then join the development pathway.
