As rugby continues to grow in the United States and Eastern Pennsylvania, so too does the need for qualified referees, touch judges and referee coaches. Whether you are an active match official, a volunteer administrator or are considering taking up the whistle for the first time, you have a pivotal role to play in the development of officiating in the EPRU.
Each week, each season, referees and match officials play a vital role in rugby and without them, games simply wouldn't grow. In addition to offering a unique way to get involved in the game you love, refereeing is a great way to keep fit, develop new skills, make new friends and experience the teamwork and camaraderie of the large, international team of rugby referees.
Whether you're a player, ex-player, coach, school student, parent or rugby fan, there's a level of refereeing for everyone. Your aspirations may be to referee your local youth team or to one day officiate an international, either way we'd like to help guide you.
