Match Official Courses

A wide range of courses and support is available for match officials at all levels.

For new or inexperienced referees, the Quilter Kids First Refereeing Children (Under 7s to Under 13s) or the England Rugby Refereeing Award (XV-a-Side), offer an outstanding introduction to refereeing a game of rugby union and will equip you with the skills and confidence to do so effectively.

After the course…

It is recommended that you join a Referee Society. Becoming a member of one of the 40 Referees Societies means you will be appointed to a wide variety of games and have access to ongoing training, support and development opportunities.

You will then be able to develop as far as your abilities and ambition allow. For information on joining, please contact the Oxfordshire Referee Society.
