There will be two England Rugby Refereeing Award courses that will run during October 2018 that are specifically aimed at young people within NLD and are FREE to attend!

This course is ideal for young people who have either already completed the Level 1 (Quilter Kids First Refereeing Children or equivalent) or who are fairly confident & feel ready to start refereeing the 15 a side game.
