Associate Referees Course

The Associate Referee course is an introduction to refereeing taking 2-3 hours depending on numbers. Key elements in the course include management strategies, communication and law application.

On completion of the course participants will be legally able referee using contested scrums.

We as a union are encouraging all “Playing Rugby” level Small Blacks teams to have an Associate Referee so the games can be facilitated well while the coaches can get on and do their coaching. We also recommend clubs and schools have Associate Referees they can call on in the event a referee cannot be appointed to a game or some extenuating reason a referee cannot make their game.

2020 course dates:

  • Wednesday 22nd April – 6pm – RPC
  • Wednesday 6th May – 6pm – RPC
  • Wednesday 20th May – 6pm – Feilding Venue TBC
