Reffin’ Brilliant has been running since 2010 and has seen hundreds of students develop their skills as referees, officials and umpires.
Each season, Scottish Student Sport works closely with Scottish governing bodies of sport to deliver introductory officiating courses specifically designed for students. Reffin’ Brilliant, supported by sportscotland, provides students from across Scotland the opportunity to attend subsidised training courses across a range of sports.
