Yearly Development Fee

The Society will be paid a yearly fee by each organization assigned MSRRS referees.  In order to continue developing quality match officials, the MSRRS will assign referees only to clubs and SBRO’s that have paid the yearly referee society fee.  Payment may be made online here or by mailing a check, the amount of which can be confirmed here.

Please make a check payable to “MidSouth Rugby Referee Society” and mail to:

Thank you for partnering with the MSRRS and helping to offset the costs of developing referees.


MSRRS referees will be reimbursed $80 per rugby game from the organizing/home club on the day of and prior to the match.  The rate for a 7s game is $20 per 7s rugby game.  The rate for a youth game is $60 per youth rugby game.

Assistant referees appointed by the MSRRS will be reimbursed at $40 each per rugby game and $20 each per youth rugby game.


Organizations running tournaments or other such events may be charged $150.00 per referee per day, yet depending on the tournaments needs, each tournament may have different fees. It is the responsibility of the host club or organization to provide event shirts, food, and drinks during the event for the referees. If it is a two-day tournament, then the host club or organization needs to provide lodging and an evening dinner for Saturday night. For each tournament a head referee will be appointed. He or she will be the contact for the tournament chairman. The head referees duties will include, handling all match assignments for the tournament, being the contact referee for the tournament chairman, and answering any law questions asked by the tournament chairman.


Expenses for the Society are for administration materials, dues to territorial and national organizations, referee development, territorial exchange programs, exchanges with other referee societies, and administering certification clinics.
