Official Referees

Refereeing puts you right at the centre of the excitement and action of rugby. You’ll develop life skills, challenge yourself physically and mentally, meet new people and have fun! There are also development pathways available for referees who aspire to be involved at the highest levels of the game.

North Harbour Rugby Referees Association will support you as you learn and develop the skills required to referee, from first year referees right through to those pursuing higher honours.


Becoming an Associate Referee enables you to officiate a fixture whenever an official referee has not been appointed. It’s a fantastic way to “Be In The Game”, do some exercise and have some fun.
All junior teams require at least one trained Associate Referee.

Harbour Rugby will be delivering Associate Referees training evenings, so look out for one at your local club.
