If none of the below questions addresses your specific concern, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our team.
Can my team contact the MWRRS for a referee?
The MWRRS provides referees for Midwest Rugby Football Union sanctioned matches and leagues within the territory. As such, we don’t specifically provide referees at the behest of an individual team. The responsibility of individual, non-league fixtures would fall to the LRO, links to which are availalbe at the About Us page of this site. If an LRO needs help providing appropriate grade match officials for a game, its representatives will reach out to the MWRRS for help.
How much does the MWRRS charge for referees?
The MWRRS has no paid staff and collects money simply for redistribution to referees. Leagues and tournament hosts are generally provided a bid price for services which covers the referee’s expenses.
How do I become a MWRRS referee?
If you referee for one of our member LRO’s, you already are! Membership in the MWRRS is part of being a member in good standing in your LRO. Unlike your LRO, MWRSS does not have monthly meetings for all referees to attend; considering the geography we encompass, that would be truly difficult to accomplish. We do have an annual workshop and clinic combined with our AGM & elections. That is open to all MWRRS referees. Information on that and other MWRRS activities is always available through your LRO or this website.
