Clubs/Teams, please set your Officiating Clinic dates and sites early and let us know.
For Region Referee/Scorekeeping Clinics, pre-registration is REQUIRED. Junior Teams are limited to sending no more than FIVE (5) players per team to a "Region-sponsored" Junior Clinic. You must submit your pre-registration information at least ONE (1) WEEK before the clinic. AGAIN FOR 2012/2013: Pre-registration for the clinics will occur WITHIN the membership record for each individual. So, all attendees will need to be current members and then from within their record they will be able to register for a clinic (choose "Event Registration-Region Events" to see list of clinics to pre-register for). The clinic is free for those that pre-register. There will be a $10 charge at the door for those that do not pre-register, and they will only be allowed to participate if there is space available. Please bring a pen/pencil and paper for note-taking. Teams/Clubs may also choose to Host Your Own Clinic (Please read before setting up!) on a date and time of their choosing. This is encouraged to ease the overload at Region clinics. Please NOTE: NEW for 2012/2013 - the JUNIOR Officials Clinic will be available online (and ANYONE can take it regardless of their Re-Cert status!). See the Online Clinic Information page at left for information. You can log in to your member account to see if you are eligible to take the re-cert clinic IN PERSON (not needed for online clinic). For information on logging in to your account to check your Re-Cert eligibility, click here.
NOTE - Only Junior Players may attend a Junior clinic (except for the adult on the team roster that is attending to meet the requirement of having a certified adult on each team’s roster that will be at the SCORE TABLE at all officiating duties of the team. An adult attending the Junior clinic will not be eligible to officiate in the Adult tournaments unless they attend an adult clinic -attending an adult clinic will meet the requirement to be certified if that adult is also on a Junior roster). Adults (coaches, players, and officials) must attend an Adult clinic to get certified to officiate on the stand. Juniors may elect to attend any of the Adult Clinics also if space is available (however, the format of the clinics are slightly different).
AGAIN FOR 2012/2013: All First year adult coaches that intend to get certified as an official MUST attend a LIVE clinic (to meet the above requirement of one adult per junior team certified they can attend a Junior clinic). If this coach also wants to be their official for an Adult team, then they would have to attend an ADULT Officiating clinic instead (meets both requirements).
Teams/Clubs may also choose to Host Your Own Clinic on a date and time of their choosing. This is encouraged to ease the overload at Region clinics.
