The ‘Give Reffin a Try’ information night will take place on Monday 29th April at 7.30 pm in Sligo RFC clubhouse. This event will be of interest to anyone who would like to get involved in refereeing the game.IRFU Referee Development & Education Manager Peter Fitzgibbon will give a presentation on the many facets of his role, including
- How the referee system works in Connacht and beyond
- What pathways, supports and benefits are available to those that do get involved
- How to sign up
- Q & A session
Members of the ARCB will be in attendance to give an insight in to their experiences as a referee, and we will give everyone a chance to ‘be the referee’ with some interactive work.
Referees have one of the toughest jobs in sport. It is important to remember that the referees are under pressure during the game too, not just the players and we all agree on how much respect referees deserve from everyone who is a part of the rugby family.
As a club, Sligo RFC must also play its part in encouraging and training referees.
