Referees

Harrow RFC needs more referees!

Why Referee?
There are a whole host of reasons why you might take up the whistle: to remain active in the sport following injury or retirement, to make new and lasting friends within the game, or to gain a sense of achievement by providing an invaluable service to players, coaches and spectators alike.

Whatever the reason, refereeing is challenging, rewarding and above all, can be great fun.

Harrow RFC is obliged to supply referees for League, Cup and club matches and without one, there's no game so help the players and the club by learning to referee.

Getting Started
As a new referee, you are advised to undertake the Entry Level Referee Award (ELRA), a three-stage award which will provide you with the key tools to referee competently.

If you choose to join a regional referees society, then you will be required to complete all three stages of the ELRA. If you wish to remain within your own school, club or university, then you need only complete stages one and two. These cover the following aspects of refereeing:

-Management and control
-Problem solving
-Refereeing the key phases of the game
-Positioning and communication
-Laws of the game
-Stages one and two focus on practical learning, giving you the -opportunity to observe refereeing in practice and build confidence in your own skills on the field of play.

The courses take place over 2 days at weekends and HRFC will pay the costs.
