Refereeing appointments can usually be organised around a person’s availability. If someone is going to be at a ground anyway (perhaps as a player coach or team manager or assistant referee or supporter, etc.), then refereeing an earlier or later match while there makes a fair bit of sense. There is a longstanding tradition of referees also being active members of senior and junior Rugby clubs.
A click on this link takes you to the Referee Recruitment page of the Sydney West RRA website. Here you’ll find background to the match official role, an overview of the two types of Rugby referees (fully accredited and Pathway) and an explanation of the process for becoming a referee.
Those interested in becoming a fully accredited referee register for and attend the Foundation Course. Those interested in refereeing only the Pathway age groups register for and attend the Refereeing Kids Rugby U8-U12 Course.
Rugby Australia’s 2019 education program can be viewed by clicking here. For convenience, a list of Foundation Courses and Refereeing Kids Rugby (RKR) Courses currently scheduled for the Sydney metropolitan area is provided below.
