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

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 Referee Development Seminar 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. The Study Guide will prepare you for the written exam. The two together are designed to prepare you for the demands of refereeing actual fencing bouts.

The cost of the clinic is free for Illinois division members. $25 for those not a member. There is a 50% discount for high schoolcoaches. Please make checks out to the USFA-ILL. Div.

There will be a working dinner during the clinic. Please feel free to bring food and drink.
