Become a Referee!

Ever thought of becoming a referee?

Jes_v_Grammar_Senior_Cup350The Association of Referees Connacht Branch is looking to recruit new referees for the coming season and is running a New Recruits course on Saturday the 10th of September. The course will be run in Corinthians RFC starting at 10am.

Rugby Refereeing is a great hobby which includes many benefits:

– Provide an invaluable service to your province.

– Keeps you fit (Referees run an average of 6 miles in an 80 minute match).

– Active participation in our great game.

– Monthly Workshops and Courses.

– Access to gear.

– Games at every level to cater for your ability with a clear pathway to progress.

– Benefit your club financially through the clubs of Ireland Scheme.

So if you have ever thought of becoming a referee then don’t think twice. We would be delighted to have you at our next New Recruits Course.   You do not have to be a member of a rugby club and all levels of rugby experience are catered for. The minimum requirements are that you are 18 years old or older, have a basic level of fitness and an availability to referee.

If interested please contact Dave O’Brien on 087-6418340 or [email protected].
