About the Society

Welcome. The Herts Referees Society is responsible for providing suitably qualified and experienced referees for adult and youth rugby throughout the County. We typically cover about 1200 games in the course of a season.

The Society provides Training and Development for Referees in 4 ways through:

  • running monthly training and development sessions for all of our members at the University of Hertfordshire
  • running monthly development sessions for our newer referees
  • arranging weekly fitness sessions at the St Albans Athletic Track
  • providing experienced assessors and coaches to review your games and offer constructive advice.

If you are interested in joining the Society, or simply want to know more about refereeing, please e-mail me ( or Peter Smith, our Membership Secretary, on
