R&J Training Course – 20 & 21 January 2018

Attention all currently active R&J

We would like to once again remind you of our plans to deliver a second R&J training & development course which will be delivered over Saturday & Sunday 20/21 January 2018 in our Bridgeton High Performance Centre.

Please note that this will be open to all R&J currently officiating in Scotland and will be much more intensive & informative than the previous refresher session held on Saturday 11 November 2017. We will also be sharing and focusing on a considerable amount of as yet unpublished information from the new AIBA R&J Manual – Therefore, it is in the interests of all our officials to attend this training.

All other relevant details are as follows:

  • All those R&J planning to attend must register by notifying the BSL office by email:


no later than Monday 15th January 2018 – mandatory details are name, club, level (club, district, national, international) and experience (no of bouts);

  • BSL future plans for R&J development will be presented to those in attendance over the weekend;
  • We will be seeking to engage our most experienced officials to help with training delivery;
  • The pathway and opportunities available to our R&J will be explained;
  • Criteria for attendance – all R&J currently active at club, district and national level are invited to register and attend as part of and ongoing training and development programme;
  • All attendees on Sunday 21st January must bring their refereeing uniform for practical sessions.
