Level One

Refereeing Courses

Interested in becoming a referee? Passing a Level one refereeing course qualifies you to referee school and club rugby matches – as well as joining your local referee society.

You must complete the World Rugby RugbyReady online assessment before attending a Level one course.

World Rugby RugbyReady online course

The Level 1 course is 6 hours in total and is mainly classroom based with some practical elements. The course is free but should you wish to referee for your local referee society, you will be asked to pay the annual subscription. All attendees will receive a Law Book, Law Variation Cards and course handouts.

After you've completed the course and passed the exam you are required to do an on-field assessment.  This can be arranged through your local referee society.  With all this successfully completed you are licensed to referee up to and including Regional League 2, Schools, and youth rugby

To register for a place on one of the scheduled courses, select the course of your choice from the list below and contact referee.courses@sru.org.uk before the registration closing date of your chosen course.

Consideration will be given to any requests by clubs to hold a course for their members at the club outside the dates of the scheduled course listed below –  there will be a charge of £100 to run any course not on the planned schedule
