Welcome to the Official Website of the Potomac Society of Rugby Football Referees.

This site is dedicated to ensuring that the players, managers, fans, and referees of the Potomac Rugby Union can enjoy the sport of rugby in a safe and competitive environment.

The Potomac Society of Rugby Football Referees (PSRFR) serves the Potomac Rugby Union (PRU).  Geographically, the PRU is made up of teams from as far north as Indiana University of Pennsylvania (and also Pittsburgh, though not on a regular basis) and as far south as the Marines stationed at Quantico Marine Base in Quantico, VA.  The PRU stretches to Frostburg, Maryland in the west to Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland in the east.  However, the majority of teams are located within the Washington DC metropolitan area.  The PSRFR does offer its services to other local unions, Eastern Penn (EPRU) and Virginia (VRU), as well as providing referees for the Mid Atlantic Region (MARR).  PSRFR referees do travel throughout the US on exchanges with other unions.  If you are interested in refereeing in the PRU or in being part of an exchange, contact our president.

PSRFR Referees are a global group.  Many of the PSRFR members are nationals of countries other than the United States.  Currently, the UK, South Africa, Argentina and Sri Lanka are represented, but Australia and New Zealand referees have also called the PRU their home at one time.

If you are visiting the States, or will be moving to the Washington DC area, and want to continue reffing matches, let our President know your plans.

Since the PSRFR is centered around Washington DC and the surrounding communities, many of our referees are employed by the federal government.  Others have found gainful employment within the "high tech" sector of the Silicon Dominion (that's slang for Virginia) and the Biotech Corridor (that's slang for Maryland).

Still others are involved in education, at all levels.  Many are self-employed, like our baker and writer for Playboy.  In other words, it takes all kinds to ref this game, and the PSRFR is made up of all kinds.
