Description: Completion of the coursework Friday qualifies the referee as a “Certified Sevens Referee” (Level 1 7s course completion). To be accredited (Level 2 7s course completion), the given referee must be observed and show competency in a number of checklist items. The competency observation can start the next day at Rock & Roll Sevens but may not be completed until a later time simply depending on whether some of the various game situations which must be observed occur. Nonetheless, those competencies observed will be forwarded, in that, the list does not need to be observed in one outing.
The Level 1 Officiating Sevens course is a one day, attendance only program.
