Mandatory requiremements for Mat Official

On Friday, November 24, 2017 we will be holding a mandatory referee training session from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. Registration is from 8:30-9:00 am. The location is Mayo Quanchi, 17 Sandy Bottom Road, Coventry, RI. New and returning referees are required to attend.

All referees are required to have a current USA Wrestling 'Officials' membership. USA Wrestling ‘Officials’ cards will be provided by RI Wrestling. All applicants meeting the complete training criteria and remaining a member in good standing will receive the official membership card. Go to to create or renew your membership. Please note the website is new this year so returning members will still need to create a new account but can link their old account once created.

The rule book and case book will be available on Friday the 24th.

Contact Bob Soares for more information or about signing up as a mat official (Referee) by e-mail or at 781-492-3518.
