Following the success of the course run in Sunday’s Well last season, in conjunction with Irish Squash, we’ve organised another Club Grade Referee Course (World Squash Level 1) in Munster – in Highfield this time out. The charge for the course was €20 (includes a copy of the rules and the assessments) and players signed up on the Irish Squash Refereeing Page.
Course Description: As Club Grade Referees (World Squash Level 1) successful participants will be qualified to referee internal matches in their clubs and league matches between clubs. With added experience Club Grade Referees (Level 1 World Squash) can progress to Tournament Grade Referee (Level 2 W.S.).
You will need to:
- Attend 2, 90-minute course sessions where the rules will be explained and demonstrated.
- Familiarise yourself with the Rules and Appendices. (See Refereeing Resources Page)
- Test your knowledge and understanding of the rules by taking some of the quizzes on squashref.org where you can self-assess privately.
- Demonstrate your ability to use the appropriate marker and referee ‘calls’ in a practical assessment.
- Obtain the ‘Pass’ mark in a written assessment (85%). The ‘written’ assessment is on-line and you can attempt it as often as you like.
Hopefully from the 9 players who enrolled we will get some more qualified referees and we can add to the list of qualified referees in Munster.
You will find useful refereeing quizzes here and the Rules-of-Squash-2019 here.
