Becoming a Referee
It's the best seat in the house!
We can all agree on one thing, there is no greater team sport in the world. If you're involved in rugby in anyway, you understand exactly what we mean. Discipline, respect & teamwork are just 3 key values that lift rugby above any other sport.
Rugby is a sport for everyone and that is not just referring to the players, it includes everyone who wants to be involved with the sport.
So why become a referee?
Are or were a player and want to continue with rugby and coaching isn't of interest to you?
A coach who wants to give further to the sport?
A fan of the sport and wants to get involved when playing isn't an option?
What will being a rugby referee give you?
Fitness! Keeping up with play and thinking under pressure when exhausted works you hard physically and mentally.
You will become a fitter, faster and stronger version of yourself....without having to go to the gym every morning.
Development. Refereeing offers fantastic opportunities to develop with so many leagues and abilities, you can always strive to improve and move up the ladder.
Connections. Hey, this is rugby after all! This sport is amazing at helping people who are involved meet new people, find new places and opportunities. Go to any place in the world, find a rugby club or referee society and you'll be treated like a long lost friend.
