Marlton, NJ - NCR is pleased to announce the appointment of Dave Haines as its first Referee Director.
Dave has dedicated more than 30 years of his rugby life to refereeing and referee development. As a Referee Administrator, Coach, World Rugby Educator and Performance Reviewer (for the MLR, WPL, D1A Rugby, NIRA and ARP) in the US, he has helped the development of countless referees.
A former Midwest RRS Territorial Referee, Dave lives in Knoxville, Tennessee. He is past Chair of the Mid-South RRS. He is currently providing referee development support for the WPL, Midwest and Mid-South RRS as well as being a judicial officer for the South Central CRC and working with SMAC Youth Rugby in Knoxville.
College Rugby matches are the games that are important in the development of referees. I am honored to be asked to advise NCR on how they can best bring resources to the Local Referee Organizations to aid in this very important part of the game. - Dave Haines
NCR CEO Jeremy Treece says, "we are excited to add Dave Haines to our team. Dave's leadership, knowledge and experience will help NCR assist referees in their growth and development going forward to benefit the entire collegiate rugby community."
