Junior Rugby (Under 6-10) do not have registered referees formally appointed to their fixtures by the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union. Instead, all teams are required to provide associate referees and the home team is initially responsible for appointing a referee. If they can’t provide a referee, the visiting team is asked and if they can’t provide an associate referee. If not, then anyone can referee the game but the kids go to uncontested scrums.
As a registered referee, you’re allowed to referee junior rugby so long as it doesn’t interfere with your Bay of Plenty Rugby Union appointments. Just be sure that you’re not standing on anyone’s toes first. If a coach from the home team asks, then by all means go for it.
REFEREES: If you’re ever contacted directly from a club, school or anyone to referee a match other than Under 6-10, please direct them to our website's Referee Request Form. It is vital to the appointment process that all requests for referees come through the correct channel.
