We look forward to helping you continue enjoying the game and start/continue your career as a referee. There is a lot of rugby played in New England. Join us and help make it a better game for everyone.

There are three basic requirements for being assigned to matches:

  1. Pass the USA Rugby Level 100 Certification Course

  2. Register as a referee on the USA Rugby member portal

    • Choose NERRS as your referee society​

    • Indicate your primary NERRS region (outlined here)

    • Add your availability, both times and region(s), using the "My Availability" section

New England needs more referees, so the Referees Society and the New England Rugby Football Union will help you with these requirements and any other issues you may have, and once you have completed these requirements you are ready to join the Society and start refereeing!
