How do I become a referee?
Becoming a referee offers a unique opportunity to both experience the sport of rugby and serve as a key member of our community.
Few other sports rely on the referee in the way that rugby does. Play is continuous, so the referee has a continual stream of judgements to make. Are you up for the challenge?
Whether you’re a former player who wants to continue to be active in the sport or you’re a student looking for an interesting part-time job, the journey to becoming an active referee begins with your completion of Rugby Ready and then enrolling in the Level 1 Referee Course.
Once you’re trained, it’s time to register with BC Rugby / Referee Society and get your first assignment.
