Introduction To Refereeing Course – Old Rishworthians – 18/07/2024

Dear All, 

We have heard your pleas for referees and whilst we aim to appoint a referee to as many of your games as we can, there is a large shortage of referees that we have here at the society. 

To help increase the number of qualified referees, we would like to inform you about the Introduction to Refereeing course that we are running at the Old Rishworthians Club on Thursday the 18th of July 6:30pm-9:30pm. 

Please encourage the members within your clubs to participate in the intro to refereeing course and take the first step by picking up a whistle. 

What will the individual get out of this?

All individuals who attend the course will be provided with a set of cards and a shirt. If the individual likes refereeing and would like to continue with their ERRA course (England Rugby Refereeing Award) there are funds available so that they do not have to pay the full fee for this course. 

How much is the course and what would I need?

The course is completely free to anyone who is attending. All that we ask is that you bring a whistle, a pair of boots, something to take notes on if they wish,  and dress in preparation to do some practical things. 

How do I sign up?

To sign up you need to press the link below, follow the steps and fill it in.  This will ensure that you have secured your place on the course which is on a first come first serve basis.

This course is designed for all age groups and games. It is a way to provide information on the basics of refereeing so that if people want to pick up a whistle or find themselves in the middle of a pitch they can feel more comfortable that they have the basic knowledge to referee the game. 

I trust that you will be able to distribute the information about the course throughout your clubs. If you have any questions, concerns or want anymore information please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Many thanks, 

Niamh O’Connor
