Referees are an important part of the game of croquet and there are never enough of them to go around. So please consider taking the course and getting accredited. Knowledge of the rules will help the quality of your game and having more referees available helps spread the load.
The GC Director of Refereeing is John Doepel and the AC Director of Refereeing is currently vacant. The Directors deal with all matters pertaining to laws & rules, training and accrediting referees, liaison with ACA, and the supply of laws books & hoop gauges.
