Referee Education Officer

What is a Referee Education Officer?

A Referee Education Officer covers a number of provincial areas to provide education and support for community rugby referees.  Their primary role is to promote and implement initiatives that increase referee recruitment, retention, training and education of referees.

The Referee Education Officer roles were created in 2001 as part of New Zealand Rugby's implementation of the Referee Education Programme.
