Officiating Sevens Course and Level 2 Referee Certification Option

 Sponsored by the Northern California Rugby Referee Society (NCRRS), in conjunction with USA Rugby and the NCYRA.


The IRB Officiating Sevens course will be offered on Saturday, June 7, 2014, in  
Dixon, California. It will be held in conjunction with a youth sevens tournament 
on Sunday, June 8. Those completing the course work on Saturday who wish to obtain 
Level  2 certification can be observed refereeing at the tournament to 
complete their requirements. 

The Lead Educator will be Bruce Carter. 

Approximate delivery time: 8 hours

Cost: $50 for the Level 1 course  on Saturday, an additional $25 for the 
Level 2 certification on  Sunday.

Prerequisites: An IRB Level 1 Officiating (generic fifteens)  certificate 
of attendance.

Requirements for Certification: Current USA Rugby membership, including  
registration as a referee, attend and participate in all course modules.

Description: The Levels 1 and 2 Officiating Sevens courses are designed to 
provide referees with the skills and knowledge needed to referee Sevens 
Rugby  in the national environment (in major Unions) and to international 
levels in  less developed Unions and/or age grade international competitions.  
They  build strongly on the IRB Levels 1-3 Officiating courses and seek to 
assist  match officials who aim to referee or assist in Sevens.

The Level 1 Officiating Sevens course is a one day, attendance only  
program. The optional second portion of the course is a second day,  accreditation 
program, giving Level 2 IRB Officiating 7s accreditation. To achieve this 
designation the participant must show competence in all competency  
transcript descriptors for all modules of the course.

Course Focus:
The principles of attack and defense in 7s  rugby
The time, space, and tolerance needed for officiating 7s rugby
How  Assistant Referees and In-Goal Judges assist the referee
