Refereeing in Touch is an excellent experience and different to all other sports. Every game is triple refereed with all three referees working together as a team and continuously changing roles. Referees are a key part of the game and essential to the sport's growth and development.


The first step on the refereeing ladder is to attend one of our L1 courses. The course is just two hours long and will equip to take to the field and join in the fun.
