Officials have a challenging and sometimes difficult job to perform. They play an essential role and contribute significantly to the quality of sporting experiences for players and spectators.


You Make the Call - Training Programme for Junior Referees

WILSS works with the New Zealand Rugby Union to support the delivery of the ‘You Make the Call’ – an officiating programme for junior and beginner referees.

This programme is integrated with unit standard 31388 (Level 3, Credits 10, Version 1). It includes modules covering all areas of the game such including the role of the referee, injury prevention and precompetition preparation. It concludes with a practical on-field assessment.

There’s a bit of work involved. But the joy of seeing kids involved in sports teams makes it well worth it."
