Sign up now for Station Road course

In a first for the city Southampton Spitfires Station Road Ground will host a rugby league match officials course on Sunday 27th April, run by the RFL.

The course is open to anyone wishing to become a match official or just simply wanting to learn more about the rules of the game, you don't have to be a Spitfires club member to attend and the course is open to individuals from other clubs across the south.

"We don't get many chances like this in our area, in fact this is a first for us so I would advise anyone with an interest in developing their understanding of the rules, either to assist them in their coaching or to actually take up refereeing, to register for this course as quickly as possible" added Club Development Officer Andy Moore.

The one day course is £25.00 per person (£12.50 for juniors) but Southampton Spitfires volunteers, coaches and players can take advantage of a half price offer with the club paying half of the fee for them.
