Getting Started in Refereeing is Easy

Do you have what it takes to become the next Bill Harrigan or Tim Mander?

Do you have a love for the game, a patient demeanor, and a desire to excel?

Becoming a referee is a simple process. These pages will tell you all you need to know about joining Parramatta Referees and becoming a Ref yourself.

Being a referee is great fun. You will improve your fitness and knowledge of the rules as well as work with some of the most enthusiastic people in Rugby League.

And its not just for those dreaming of NRL success. Many of our members are happy just being involved and refereeing locally.

Age is not a problem. We have some active referees over the age of 50.

If you'd like to give refereeing a go, you can contact the Director of Recruitment & Retention or call us on 0488-BE-A-REF or 0488-23-2-733 or go to the Contact Us page. You will be told of the next preliminary course.

Once you have completed the course, you will become a preliminary referee. From there you can advance through the accreditation process and ranks.

Who knows, maybe you will referee the NRL Grand Final one day.
