Club Referee Training:

 Some useful information below for anyone considering joining the burgeoning ranks of Burgess referees.

Basic Club Referee Training Courses are provided every two years by trained Referee Tutors in County Tipperary. Held over 4 nights in Thurles, the course is developed in conjunction with Croke Park and supported through the Provincial Munster Referees Administrators. Dates for the Training Course are as follows;

FOUNDATION COURSE (Sarsfields Centre, Thurles – ALL 8pm)

Thursday 26 Jan 2017

Thursday 2 February 2017

Thursday 9 February 2017 (ON LINE Timed Module)

Training as a Club Referee involves the following modules:

Rules of Specification / The Play / Scores/ Powers and Duties of the Referee Technical Fouls / Set Play / Aggressive Fouls / Dissent / Referee’s Report / Rules Test / Fitness Test 

Modules are “classroom” based and involve attendance and participation by the prospective referees. A timed Rules Test is centrally organised by Croke Park, which the participants complete “on-line”, with a pass-mark set which must be achieved for successful progression 

An initial trial Fitness Test, i.e. a “BANGSBO or BEEP Test” will be used to familiarise new entrants with the levels required. A standard test will be used later in the year to monitor progression with a view to the achievement of a minimum standard required for qualification.

Following successful completion of the Training Course the successful candidate is certified as qualified by Coiste Ríaracháin Réiteoirí Contae Tiobrad Árann as a Réiteoir Chlub or Club Level Referee. It is recommended for Foundation Referees to be appointed to referee games up to and including U14 for a period of 2 years.  

We are now seeking applications from interested individuals, who are considering taking up the role as Club Referee and applications must be submitted through their respective Club Secretary on the relevant Application Form which is available online on the Tipperary GAA website. See http://tipperary.gaa.ie/gaa-referee-recruitment-tipperary/. Please note all applications must be accompanied by a cheque for €100, from the applicant’s home club, which will be refunded after officiating at ten games. Completed application forms accompanied by €100 cheque only should be forwarded to Paul Stapleton, Secretary, Tipperary Referees Administration Committee, Lár na Páirce, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

All clubs who do not currently have a referee in their club are encouraged to trawl their membership for prospective candidates.
