The below message, circulated to our appointment officers, confirms the RFU requirement that none DBS holders cannot be appointed to youth games.
You may be aware that all Youth, schools and selected other games must now have only referees holding a current DBS certification appointed to them. We have marked all Youth & Schools fixtures as DBS Reqd=Y, when appointing to these games only referees with a valid DBS certificate will be made available to you in the appointing screen.
If you intend to referee some of these matches, but do not have a RUGBY DBS please contact Mike Vaughan email@example.com
If you are a Reviewer or Coach and do not have a DBS, please also contact Mike so you can be appointed to youth games
