Courses

Referee Courses are proposed for the spring. More details to follow in the coming month.

Level 1 Referee Course

Attending this course has a number of benefits, and you will be under no obligation to start refereeing in the league. The course will be run by England Touch Referees director, Bruce Lockie.

  • This is an Introductory course for Touch Referees.
  • No previous experience is necessary and everyone is welcome.
  • This 3 hour course includes a discussion about the basics of the game and of refereeing.
  • Those who pass the course (which includes on-field assessment either that day or at a later stage) will receive a European Level 1 certificate and badge.

What are the benefits of attending?

  1. Learn the rules
  2. Learn how to understand what the referee is trying to do.
  3. Gain maximum advantage out of any offences that occur.
  4. Better understand what a referee has to deal with.
  5. Don't forget, referees in the Bristol Touch Leagues get paid £5 per match.

Course cost: £10 (Bristol Touch league players), £20 (Non-Bristol Touch)

Level 2 Referee Course

The course will be run by England Touch Referees director Bruce Lockie. Ideally interested people will have attended and passed the Level 1 course before attending a Level 2 course. Also referees will need to have done a season of refereeing prior to the course.

This is a full one day course and will consist of a presentation, interactive sessions, theory & practical assessment (at a later stage). Those who pass the course will receive a European Level 2 certificate and badge.

Course cost: £18 (Bristol Touch league players), £28 (Non-Bristol Touch)
