Give Refereeing a try!

Benefits to becoming a referee:

There is currently a shortfall of referees in domestic rugby within Connacht.  On busy weekends during the season a significant number of games are unable to be covered by branch appointed referees due to lack of numbers.  The 2010/11 season promises to be busier than ever which further highlights the current shortfall of referees.

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.

The next New Recruits Course will be on Sunday 12th September 2010 at the Sportsground in Galway.

To register for the course or for further information please contact David O’Brien on 087-6418340 or by email at [email protected]
