Shinty referees are required to officiate at matches throughout Scotland but with a particular concentration in the West Highlands and Argyle and Bute. Typical fixtures will see the referee making a round trip of 100 - 150 miles in some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery. The role of the referee requires a good level of fitness to a standard of that expected in a fast run or bike-a-thon. Training and support are on hand.
Please contact us to find out when this opportunity takes place.
