My Path

I've wanted to referee for as long as I can remember, recently I have noticed that instead of ball watching during a game I am ref watching, ( which I must admit has led to almost being run over by oversized forwards on more than one occasion ). So as a player, coach and father I seemed to spend most weekends especially Sundays at the rugby club. Finally I made the decision to add the refereeing skill to my book, through the club I booked on an ELRA course which I would recommend to everyone who was thinking about it, I know Im preaching to the converted but it was a definite eye opener. Jumping in at the deep end, as soon as I got home after completing said course I fired of an email to my local referee society expressing my interest for referring the next available match. I got a kind reply stating the next monthly meeting place,date and time. With the enticing extra of a special guest speaker being one of the premiership referees I have placed that date in my diary. To get to the ending of my first week I have spoken to my youth chair and organised to referee an under tens team, which I have been reliable reassured will please the coach who would otherwise have to do it himself. So as long as I survive the massacre of under 10s I will recall my experience. :) I think the waiting is the worst

Hi, thanks for your response to my 'in goal' question. As a new referee 'in goal' is probably the one aspect that concerns me the most, I suppose its because that's where the controversy happens??
