  • AR’s $30 (paid by Home Team)
  • Referee Coach/Assessor $20 (paid by FRRA)

All Matches

This is protocol for all matches. Specific protocols for friendly/league games are listed below:

  • Assignments will be posted no later than the Monday prior to the match.
  • The referee then needs to be confirmed with KO and match location no later than the Wednesday prior to the match.
  • If you do not confirm your referee by Wednesday they will be re-assigned and you WILL NOT get a referee for your match.
  • If you confirm then cancel after the Wednesday deadline (Thursday onward) then you will be charged the referee match fee. If this is due to a last minute cancellation by a visiting FRU club the home club can petition FRU to bill the visiting club the match fee.
  • The referee’s match fee is paid by the home club at the venue on the day in accordance with the fee schedule listed below ($80 per match, abbreviated matches ie. B games will be paid at a rate of $1.00 per minute not to exceed normal match fee of $80). Ref fees are paid prior to kickoff.

Standard game times are as follows for each division:

  • 11:00 Am – Youth & Middle School
  • 12:00 PM – High School
  • 1:00 PM – Senior Women or College Women
  • 2:00 PM  – Senior Men or College Men

If multiple matches are to be played at the same venue and an additional warm-up pitch is not available, the following match times apply:

In general the precedent would be the “least senior” team plays first and then we have the most senior team playing last, with “senior” being dictated by age. If both teams have the same seniority, say in terms of women and men both being D2 or 2 colleges, the women will play first.

League Matches

  • All League Schedules are sent by the General Manager to the FRRA on behalf of all clubs.
  • The referee’s travel expenses and the assistant referee’s travel expenses (if assigned) are reimbursed by the FRRA for League games but not for friendly games.
  • When certified assistant referees are assigned or requested, the home club is responsible for the match fee to each individual AR.
  • Any changes to matches, league or friendly, need to be confirmed with the FRRA and Florida Rugby

Friendly Matches

  • Referees are to be requested via the FRRA VP for all matches including friendlies. Ross Davenport can be contacted via rossdevonport@gmail.com
  • The club requesting the referee is responsible for the payment of the match fee at the venue on the day of the match prior to KO.
