Be Prepared for the Next Referee Refresher Seminar

All national referees are aware of their responsibility to remain

  • updated in their knowledge of the competition rules and regulations,
  • prepared with the officiating mechanics and signals and
  • physically and mentally fit.

As in the past, referees will be evaluated on all the three areas in the next Kyorugi Referee Refresher Course.

For the physical tests, the following minimum standards are required.

The Board of Referees hopes that the information will be useful in the referees’ preparation for the test.

National referees are also reminded that it is mandatory for them to know the pledge. On top of that, blood pressure test and resting heart rate will also be conducted.
