Are you short of Referees at you club?
Difficulty in persuading people to take up the whistle?
Would a sample session help?
The London Society of Rugby Football Union Referees (LSRFUR) are offering to come to your club and run a taster session for would be referees. Our target audience is those people who predominately stand on the touchline every Sunday and watch their sons or daughters, or siblings, take part in a rugby training/game.
To enable the LSRFUR to run these sessions we would like your club to provide a group of U10 players to be the players. The sessions could be run after a training session or as part of a training session.
A safety training would be given to the candidates before they referee, as well as a demonstration of refereeing, prior to them actually refereeing. We would then get them to referee a game for up to 5 minutes, and them give them a de-brief. We would suggest that a maximum of 7 candidates for each session.
If you, or your club are interested in the above please contact Bob Ockenden via email firstname.lastname@example.org
