You can’t play a game of rugby without one person – the referee..

At Chobham RFC value our referees and are committed to providing all our players with the best referees available. We aim to provide all our referees with many opportunities for continued learning and personal development.

As a new referee, you are advised to undertake the England Rugby Referee Award which will provide you with the key tools to referee competently.  The RFU have a wealth of information and videos for referees at Refereeing (

Chobham RFC have also worked closely with London Society of Referees and Surrey Rugby to put on both introductory sessions and also CMOD (Continuous Match Official Development) sessions on a regular basis.

  • Management and control
  • Problem solving
  • Refereeing the key phases of the game
  • Positioning and communication
  • Laws of the game

The RFU and the London Society of Referees regularly run courses for both experienced referees and new entrants
