 Become a Referee

Refereeing is a fun, exciting, non-contact way to be involved with Rugby League. It’s a great way to keep fit, and meet new and interesting people.

We provide coaching, mentoring and assistance to become an accredited referee and to advance to more senior levels of refereeing.

Our next Level 1 Course will be held on 5 March 2017.  Applicants will need to complete an online module prior to attending the face to face session.
