    Question SRU Level 1 Referees Course

    Hi folks,

    I've been a rugby fan for quite a while, and have lurked on these forums as a guest for many years due to my interest in both the Laws of the game and the role of the Referee.
    After toying with the idea for a bit, I have finally decided I'd like to learn to become a referee, and have registered for a SRU Level 1 Referees Course taking place at the end of June at BT Murrayfield.
    I have completed the Rugby Ready online programme, and am working my way through the updated 2018 Law book, but I wondered if anyone has any hints/tips on what I can expect during this course, and/or any advice on how to prepare for it?
    Is there anything particular I might need to take with me (I have not played the game myself, so do not have boots, etc so if these were required I'd need to pick them up before hand)?
    Thanks in advance.

    I assume they will tell you if you need to take boots with you.

    If it's anything like the WRU Level 1 course though, it will be 100% classroom based, but I do remember that their e-mail made that very clear.

    Not sure if comparable, RFU Level 1 is half classroom and half reffing mini games, on a playground in my case but could be outside so i’d Go prepared

    I'm sure one of our Scottish refs will be around to help you soon. Well after celebrating the Cricket result at least! That said I'd tale the law book with you both the 2018 and a 2017 if you can get hold of one pen and paper too!! I'd have some kit available Trainers and trackies. On my L1 (WRU) we did a little bit of work outside (setting up rucks and mauls etc). Stuff that your could do inside or out to be fair. I'm sure the SRU will tll yo uwhat you need to take.

    Good luck with the course!

    American L1 is half class, half live.

    And while we're on the cricket...two things, and one will make you feel old. David Sole's lad played in the cricket and Big Gav's lad played for Scotland against Canada.

    And second. Just a shout out for Test Match Special. What a great institution the Beeb have given us in TMS. Wonderful radio and podcasts.

    BTW - Guess who gets to play the mini games your colleagues get to ref?

    Thanks for all your input so far guys. Much appreciated.

    Not yet had an email from Scottish Rugby RE what I should expect or take with me, and having not played the game myself I don't have any existing kit to speak off.
    Looking at the event page, it appears registration for the course is open until Wed 27th (just few days before the course), so was worried they might not email out till after that, which would only leave me a couple of days to pick up anything I didn't have.

    Might just start picking up some basic kit just in case, and if in the end it's not needed for the course, at least I'll have a head start on putting together a kit bag for later.

    Do you have shorts (football?), T-shirt & trainers. I can't imagine you'll need more than that.

    If that's all I'll need, then yeah I've got those. Guess I was fixating on needing boots and the like.
