Rugby Referee Education TourUK

For a Lifetime Love of Rugby.

My Goals:

To enhance my skills as a Rugby Referee. I will be traveling to the UK in September and October. I have invitations to Referee matches in England, Wales and Scotland. My ticket is in hand and I have cleared my trip through USA Rugby. 
I am asking for donations to help fund my trip as the travel, lodging, food and time away from work has added up very quickly. I have made my passion for Rugby my life and wish to go learn more to give back to Rugby by tuning my officiating skills for the benefit of those who like me love the game. My aim is to add to my tools and to deliver the best game I can as it pertains to the IRB Laws (International Rugby Board). To supply the teams and players the most safe and fair chance to compete on the field, on the day.

My Current grade is C-1
I am a upstanding memebr of:
S.C.R.R.S. Southern California Rugby Referee Society As well as current Incumbent 7s Boss (Volunteer Position)
N.C.R.R.S. Northern California Rugby Referee Society
U.S.A.R.U. United States of America Rugby Union

I Began playing as a youth, however I became competative in and after High School. In my younger playing days I lived in New Zealand to enhance my skills as a player as well as spending a season in the ACT of Australia.
