KISL Officials Training Resources
Currently Certified KISL Officials
KISL rules require that all persons serving as Referee, Starter, or Stroke & Turn Judge be certified by KISL in that position. To that end, KISL holds a number of officials training clinics at the beginning of each season, and supports a testing facility for those wishing to be certified.

In addition to clinic attendance the candidate must successfully complete the certification test for the position(s) they wish to be certified for.

It is suggested that the candidate first download and complete the written test, then transfer their answers to the online test.
