It is an important objective of the County’s Strategic Plan and the Referees Committee to recruit new referees.

It is important that anybody who intends taking the course is committed to being available to referee games on a regular basis.

This is essential both to gain experience and to justify the effort put in to training new referees.

Refereeing can be very rewarding and we would encourage every club to ensure they have at least one trained and qualified referee. The form to apply to attend the course is available on the Tipperary GAA website, www.tipperary.gaa.ie. Prospective referees are asked to note that the form must be signed by their Club Secretary and that their club must support their intention to pursue the referees course.
