The Touch NZ Foundation Referee Course is the entry point into the referee pathway – ideal if you are just starting out as a referee with little or no experience. You may be a supportive parent, a player looking to improve your knowledge, or a new referee looking to support your local module.
In this course, you’ll learn about all the fundamental skills and processes used when refereeing touch including the new FIT 5th Edition Playing Rules, recently adopted by Touch NZ. It is broken into ten e-learning topics and should take approx. 2 ½ hours to complete. There are videos and interactive elements included along the way, and checkpoints to test your knowledge and comprehension. You don’t have to complete it all at once. Work through it at your own pace. Remember, you aren’t expected to be an expert after finishing this course. That will come with time and experience.
