The Referee Academy is the Clubs conduit for RFU Young Match Officials (YMOs) to the game and MY level and then into Senior Rugby.
The Academy works with the MY fixtures secretary to facilitate YMOs for U13s to U16s matches, friendly, league and cup matches. The Academy offers coaching & mentoring for YMOs and also works with local schools to provide evidence for academic qualifications (GCSE Sport).
In recent seasons G&F YMOs have officiated Hampshire MY Cup Finals, Girls National Finals and tournaments throughout the UK.
The Academy also provides a link to the Hampshire Rugby Referees (HRR) to aid with training and law updates.
