Welcome to our online training programme, “Introduction to Rugby Refereeing”. The content of this course does not assume any previous experience in the sport of rugby refereeing. It is the first stage in the rugby refereeing training and development pathway.
This online course has been written and designed directly from New Zealand Rugby’s publication of the same name, “Introduction to Rugby Refereeing.” It consists of the same 14 modules from the work book and turned into short 2-4 minute videos for the participant to watch and learn from.
There is no pass or fail, nor is there a need to submit your work for marking. This online course has been provided simply to provide you with another way of learning the first stage in the rugby refereeing training and development pathway.
