Pathway Continued. Within the structure shown yesterday there is an overriding expectation
Individual referees must take responsibility for their own development with the Society supporting them whenever possible.
Responsibility includes but is not exclusive to;
a) achieving the required fitness levels when relevant.
b) regularly passing the World Rugby online law test.
c) regularly passing the online Headcase test.
d) making themselves available to referee at all levels of the game including whenever
possible fixtures on Sundays, midweek, schools games as well as Saturday matches.
e) the regular submission of club cards (70%+ is the requirement).
attending training sessions, in particular those that come under the title of Continuous Match Official Development.
f) reached the standards described as essential in the pathway .
FRIDAY NIGHT GAMES
Last season re provided teams of three for at least 7 Friday night games. All the matches were a minimum of level 6 and we appointed our best referees and a selection of AR’s of varying experience and ability. This season we are going to continue providing officials for these games but this season they will all have had more appropriate training.
To be selected you must;
- Be available on most Friday nights and be able to get to the majority of grounds by about 6pm.
- Pass the fitness test for your current grade.
- Attend an inhouse course (date to be confirmed) which will concentrate on working in a team of three, using the coms kit etc.
- To be a referee be graded at level 6 (may also be used as AR1)
- To be AR1 be a minimum of level 7
- AR2 can be less experienced but should be someone who has the potential to reach at least level 7
IT IS HOPED THAT SPONSORED KIT WILL BE PROVIDED TO THE TEAMS OF THREE.
