Referees Needed


​​​​​​​Become a Referee

It’s as simple as a phone call or e-mail.  Contact Anne ( 0274 866 716 or mail ) for more information. You can also sit the Online Touch Module Referee Course to gain the basics of Touch refereeing. 

The Course can be easily completed during an evening and is almost entirely theory. This course allows for “easy entry” into Touch Refereeing and is ideally suited for the beginner.

​​​​​​​Benefits of becoming a Referee:

  • Health and fitness and your personal wellbeing
  • Meet new people not only in your province but throughout NZ.
  • Be involved at a level that suits you.
  • Travel to different parts of NZ for tournaments
  • Overseas travel to International events.
  • Referee exchanges with other countries.
  • Personal satisfaction with achieving your own goals
  • Being part of one of the fastest growing sports
  • Be part of our Touch family

Give something back to the game:

  • Finished playing but still want to be involved
  • Don’t want to sit on the couch
  • Want to be involved with a dedicated group of volunteers
  • Involvement to suit you and your needs
  • Be involved with our fast growing youth section.
  • Career pathway available to everyone
  • Gain personal satisfaction by being involved
