REFEREE COURSE LEVELS

To view all the USA Rugby Referee Society's Match Official Training Course Levels/Outlines/Details click here

REFEREE LEVEL 1 - OFFICIATING:

The Level 1 Officiating Course is the basic Refereeing Course.  There are no prerequisites for attending this course and it is the sole training vehicle for the education of entry level Referees as Certified USA Rugby Referees.  The Level 1 Course covers the Referee's priorities, provides an introduction to the Laws, and examines scrums, ruck/mauls, tackles, lineouts, offside, and advantage with focus on the critical parts and how to Referee them.  When a student has completed this course, and the accompanying test, they are ready to begin refereeing safely.  Students that do not pass will be given opportunities to retest onsite.  The objective is to ensure Law knowledge, not to weed people out. 

 

The Level 1 Course is required to begin Refereeing tackle Rugby and to have a Local Society rating.  This course is required to have a C3 or above rating.

 

For individuals who are Registered with USA Rugby (CIPP Registered) you may Register and pay online by going to the site www.usarugby.org  and then to Referees>Events Calendar> [go to the date and site you wish to Register for].  If you are not currently a USA Rugby member, you will be offered a chance to Register.  Please send the Course Leader/Educator an e-mail that you have Registered online.  Upon successful Registration for this course, please forward your confirmation e-mail to the respective Course Leader/Educator listed below.

 

If you do not Register online contact the respective Host, and/or Course Leader/Educator to get Registered for a Course close to you.

 

Upon completion of the course and successful passing of the open book test, you will be L1 Certified and can begin to Referee games/matches.
