NOTICE TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA CLUBS

Referee Fees
The referee fees for fifteens are $50 per side per match. Fees are calculated by multiplying the number of games your team plays by $50. This includes all league, non-league, “friendly”, B-side, etc. matches regardless if they are “Home” or “Away”.

Teams hosting matches involving teams not located in Northern California Rugby Referee Society area are responsible for the visiting team’s fees (i.e., the host pays for all non-Northern California teams).

A check or money order for fees should be made payable to “Northern California Rugby Referee Society” and sent with a copy of your team’s schedule of games. A $5 per match rebate will be applied to teams that also email their schedule(s) in a spreadsheet(s) to:
pelicanrefs@gmail.com.

Payment received by the NCRRS after December 31, 2013 may be subject to a $100 administrative fee. Fees considered “past due” will result in the NCRRS sanctioning the team by not assigning a referee to any further of team’s home or away matches (i.e., League, Non-League, or Tournament) until the fee is paid in full.

Note: If your team currently has an outstanding balance from previous seasons, you must immediately contact Jim Crenshaw (crenshaw@cal.net).

Send payment and schedule to:
Jim Crenshaw

SCRUM PROCEDURES: Effective August 1, 2013, the scrum trial engagement sequence is “Crouch – Bind – Set”. The iRB has created a C-B-S training site for guidance. USA Rugby has prepared notes on how referees could manage/approach the new sequence. Note: This is in addition to the 2012/2013 Law Amendment Trials.
