Associate Referee Course
While we still plan on having a small presence at the Small Blacks Courses throughout the province, the plan is to encourage coaches, managers & any keen parents, uncles, aunties, brothers or sisters to come along to an Associate Referee Course. We will be hosting three evenings across the province in early May. These will be practical courses focusing on the basics of refereeing rugby. This course will ensure you take the field to referee games with confidence and to ensure you have a good time while out in the middle.
All Small Blacks rugby is refereed by Associate Referees as we currently do not have the resources to appoint a Registered Referee to junior rugby.
Wed 1st May: Hautapu Rugby Club, Cambridge, 7pm
Mon 6th May: Hamilton Old Boys, Hamilton 7pm
Wed 8th May: Te Awamutu Sports Rugby Club, Te Awamutu 7pm
Waikato Rugby Union E: firstname.lastname@example.org
