Garryowen Youngsters Attend Referee Course

Garryowen Youngsters Attend Referee Course

Members of the Garryowen FC Academy recently attended the IRFU Associate Referee Course held at Dooradoyle under the watchful eye of former international referee David McHugh.

The primary purpose of the IRFU Associate Referee Course is to give coaches and players a basic knowledge of refereeing, and a better understanding of referee principles and the laws of the game.

Coaches and players are required to complete the course if they wish to referee age-grade games, training games and blitzes.

Sunday, January 3, 2010: University of Limerick, 2pm-3.30pm

Clubs please note: If it is more than three years since your coaches or players last attended this course, they are required to attend again. The course is free of charge.
