  2. Pass a Refereeing Kids Rugby online exam

Courses are co-ordinated and run by the State Unions. Courses usually run regularly from February to June, but some additional courses are held in other months.

You can register for an upcoming Refereeing Kids Rugby course in your area by using the Rugby Learning Centre. You access the Rugby Learning Centre through the Rugby Portal – you will need to sign in or create a new account in order to register.
