The three hour course, facilitated by Dave Pue (BC Rugby Referees Society), covered the following aspects:

2. Technical aspects of officiating
3. Role of the referee
4. Rules v Laws
5. Materiality
6. Advantage
7. Decision making
8. Safety
9. The key requirements of mini rugby -  working with young people
