In 2012 FIRL, after the formation of qualified personnel with the at the home of European rugby league, FIRL begins the training course for coaches and rugby league referees.
Saturday, May 12, 2012, at the Augusteo Este grounds, the first course for referees in the history of Italian rugby league will be held by the FIRL Referee section, which has received official recognition and training from the RLEF last year.
This first Referee course, held by Mr Filippo Veronse and Mr Guido Bonatti, in collaboration with Mr. Steve Davies, head of the European Federation referees association, will give participants a chance to get to know the rules, the referee signals and the position of the referee on the field and everything that a Rugby XIII referee must know to manage matches in an effective and official way.
In th first ever official course there will be 10 participants who will be included in the Federal organization and then will be sent to be official match referees in the Italian Serie A RL.
The same can be said in regards to the training of new coaches. On 2 and 3 June 2013 in Piacenza, there will be the first coaching course in the history of Italian rugby league with new coaches then coaching teams in the Italian league, Serie A RL.
Kelly Rolleston and Tiziano Franchini, second level rugby league coaches and RLEF mentors RLEF who graduated last season, along with Mr. Martin Crick, will hold the course for new rugby league coaches, starting with the basics of rugby league and working on technical knowledge of both attack and defense.
Franchini, the new team coach of the Este Rams and VenetianLions , declared that for FIRL this is a moment that will mark the turning point in Italian rugby league, because from this moment the Federation's technical area will be able to act autonomously and independently within the Italian territory without seeking help from outside Italy.
Franchini said, "Obviously the Australian, English, and French committes of FIRL who have a more delveloped base will continue to help us improve our technical knowledge and we are in fact planning a course with the Italian national team coach, Carlo Napolitano.
"The FIRL want to emphasize that the certification that the new coaches and referees will be valid at an European level."
