The due date for referee fees is 30 days after receipt.
Since referees do not get paid for their weekly matches as referees in other sports do and are only paid an expense fee, a match fee is assessed the home or host club for each of their matches that a referee is assigned to do; this money goes toward defraying some of the travel expenses incurred by the referee during the rugby season.
a. For 15-a-side matches: The fee is $100/game for an A-Side match and $50/game for a B-Side match. Mileage is 80% of the current (published) IRS rate; there shall be a cap of $275 charged (total of match fee and mileage) on an A-Side match.
b. For 15-a-side Tournaments: A fee of $20/team in attendance at a tournament will be charged by the Referees Society and will be paid by the host club; in addition, a fee of $50/day/referee will be charged for the weekend. Travel expenses will be assessed at 80% of the current (published) IRS rate. One (1) referee is needed for every two (2) teams in a 15’s tournament. Any charges for accommodations will be handled by the host club and will be negotiated between the host club and the Referees Society.
c. For 7-a-side Tournaments: A fee of $10/team in the tournament will be charged by the Referees Society and will be paid by the host club; in addition, a fee of $50/referee will be charged for the weekend. Five referees/two pitches are required staffing levels. Any referee traveling more than 30 miles (one way) will receive mileage at 80% of the current (published) IRS rate. Overnight accommodations will be negotiated between the host club and the Referees Society.
Please note that tournament fees are negotiable, but only prior to the tournament. All bills for match fees will be mailed by the end of the season; the bills are due no later than 30 days after receipt.
