Referee Fund Set to Send Officials Overseas

In the rugby world there are vast amounts of opportunities for players to travel abroad and seek out the highest level of training possible. Now, thanks to the Shanagher Morris Referee Fund, there is an opportunity for the game's officiants to get some schooling overseas.

The Fund, created by the USA Rugby Trust, will send one referee to Stellenbosch in South Africa to attend the South Africa Referee Academy. While at the Academy, the chosen referee will learn from and train with some of the world's most highly skilled referees in a fully immersive environment.

The fund will cover all costs associated with the trip, including travel and lodging.

Qualified applicants are referees with a C rating that are at least 20 years old and a current member of USA Rugby. The application process requires two letters of recommendation, a rugby resume and an officiating resume and essay questions.

Applications are due January 26, 2018. The recipients of the Fund will be chosen at the end of the month.
