Please make sure that you have adequately prepared by going through the Study Guide:

http://www.fencingofficials.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/StudyGuidePDFMay_2014_Edition.pdf


Attending an official FOC-sanctioned clinic is a prerequisite for attempting the 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 rating of "P" in each weapon passed. Further ratings improvements (1-10) can be obtained at a later date by being evaluated in a practical setting at tournaments.

The lecture and question and answer format on Saturday January 13 and Sunday January 14 will provide a broad understanding of the role, responsibilities, and duties of a referee. It is not a study group for test preparation. It is expected that participants will have read the study guide and come prepared with a willingness to learn how to be a better referee and fencer.

The cost of the clinic is $75/person, and observations can be scheduled of $25 per weapon.

Who should attend:
- Aspiring referees - who want to learn how right of way and rules are being applied at a national and international level
- Athletes - who want to improve their games and get a more complete understanding of their sport
- Coaches - who want to maintain their grasp of current interpretations and rules updates
- Parents - who want a better understanding of tournament format and the basics of sport fencing for their children
- Current referees - who need to fulfill their yearly requirement for seminar attendance or further their personal development

Russell Wilson holds an FIE category “A” rating in all three weapons, as well as a domestic rating of “111”. A referee at three Olympic Games, he is one of only two living referees to have worked in the finals of both Sabre and Foil. Russ received his international FIE B license at age 19, and has been an international referee for thirty-five years. As a coach, Russ has numerous students who have been members of national teams in various categories, as well as div 1 finalists in both foil and Sabre.

Preregistration closes on 01/12/2018.
