About the Referee Clinic
The Referee Clinic will provide you with a broad understanding of the role, responsibilities, and duties of a referee, as well as refine your sense of right-of-way, timing, and application of the penalties.

Attending an official RC-sanctioned clinic is a prerequisite for becoming a certified USA Fencing referee, along with successful completion of a written exam. Once a passing score (90%) has been achieved on the written exam (both the general section and one or more weapon-specific sections) a referee receives a "P" rating. Once you have taken the seminar and passed the written exam, you can be evaluated for a numeric rating (1-10) at a tournament.

Doors open at 8:00, seminar run 8:30-3:00. Practical exams will be offered after the seminar, beginning around 3:30.
