The cost of the course is $60, however NERFU will reimburse 50% of the cost to any NERFU registered member who takes the course and passes the subsequent test.
The Level 1 course is an introductory course that covers the refereeâs priorities, provides an introduction to the Laws, and examines scrums, ruck/mauls, tackles, lineouts, offside, and advantage with focus on the critical parts and how to referee them. When a student has completed this course, and the accompanying test, they are ready to begin refereeing safely.
The course will consist of some classroom work in the morning and in the afternoon we will be in the gym doing practical exercises, lunch will be provided. Please dress appropriately and be prepared for some mild physical activity. Peter Watson will be the lead instructor. Anyone wishing to take this course must pre-register with USA Rugby
