Welcome to The Kent Society of Rugby Referees
The Society was formed in 1950 and currently has around 166 members in various roles. We organise monthly training meetings for Referees and Match Observers at all levels of the game. These sessions provide a useful forum to aid development and also to share ideas with fellow rugby enthusiasts.
Members of the Society have progressed to Premiership, National Panel and South East Group level. The Society also maintains strong links with our colleagues from Sussex in the South East Federation.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our meetings but should you have any queries in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us using the link at the top of the page.
Monthly Training Meeting
The Breakdown & Tackle
The Society will be holding their next monthly training meeting on Tuesday 3rd Dec at Gillingham Anchorians at 7:30pm .
These sessions are always informative and open to both Society members and club referees. We will be looking at the tackle and breakdown which will be led by our training officer Nick Wickham.
Score books and assessment cards for members are always available at our training meetings. If you would like to purchase a Society tie please let our administrator know and one will be available for collection at the meeting.

Become a Rugby Referee

Who's The Ref
'Who's The Ref' manages the Society's appointments using an online appointments system. This system was trialled successfully by Norfolk and is now used at every level by Scottish Rugby. Many other societies have since subscribed both in the UK and abroad. www.whos-the-ref.com
