Posted by SCRRS Website Committee on September 11th, 2013

USA Rugby Referees’ management has established guidelines to refereeing at all levels in USA Rugby. These guidelines enable players and referees to have a clearer approach to the game, to enable consistency in Law application throughout the country. They also reflect directives from the iRB.

These guidelines are to be distributed and applied nationally to all referees, referee performance reviewers, referee coaches, players/teams, coaches and administrators for 2013.

Referee Advice

If you do not like to be shouted at, then don’t shout at somebody else. Be firm, using a normal, relaxed voice. Shouting indicates a loss of control, not only of oneself, but also the game. If you can’t control yourself you cannot be expected to control others.
