The following clinics are for certification and re-certification of Officials in the positions as indicated. Instructors, locations, and clinic times will be updated here as they are scheduled. Below is a synopsis of what is required.  Please see "Policies" under the Officials tab for more complete information.

There is a $10 Fee when attending your initial Stroke and Turn clinic or a Admin Official (no prior S&T history).

There is a $5 fee for initial Starter, Referee, or Admin Official (current S&T certification minimum) clinic. You must have served in the previous position a minimum of one year.

All Officials re-certifying should email their credentials and sessions log (at least 10 sessions per year or 20 per 2 years) to your clinician prior to your clinic. Please bring your $5 fee to the clinic. You must take the re-certification test for the highest level you are re-certifying as well as the re-certification tests for other positions you hold. Please email those results to your clinician prior to your clinic. Stroke and Turn and Starters re-certify at the clinics posted. Referee re-certification clinics take place prior to the House of Delegates meeting in the Spring and/or early Autumn as will be posted.  Please see Official's Policy for complete requirements under the Officials tab.
