BC Rugby Referees Conference
The BC Rugby Referees Conference is an annual gathering of individuals committed to delivering the highest levels of officiating in rugby matches across the Province. Through a combination of on-field sessions, video and discussion workshops and live match analysis, Referees and Coaches of Match Officials will come together to improve their collective skill sets and knowledge bases. The conference is open all level of referees including introductory, community and high performance.
We will also be exploring how to analyse performance from a holistic point view, identifying & creating space around the field, performance vs preparation mental skills, lineout to maul tactics, as well as high velocity running & training techniques. Running in parallel with the Coaches Conference, there will also be opportunities to network with rugby coaches and share ideas about improving our game.
Sunday will also include a very important BC Referee Special GM & Vote to shape the future of Refereeing in BC.
Thank you to our partner, the BCRRS for making this conference free for all registered referees to attend.
