Dorset & Wilts Society of Rugby Football Union Referees
Have you ever thought about being a Referee?
I have been tasked by the Society to run an initiative running to the end of 2016 to liaise with anyone who may be interested in becoming a referee.
I am particularly interested in potential female referees and young referees from the age of 14. Although my remit it is not limited to these two groups it is open to anyone with an interest and any level be it youth, club or society.
Many people may feel that refereeing can be a daunting and intimidating experience so I would like the opportunity to allay those fears, answer any questions, talk about your own ambitions, formal training courses, how the society works and what support is available.
Please get in touch by phone or email. We can meet up for a very informal chat over a coffee or beer. Meet at a game where I’m officiating and experience the game from inside the referee’s perspective.
Please note that for safeguarding reasons any person under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult when I meet them.
