The price for this clinic is $75 per person. Please bring cash or check for payment, as well as a sack lunch.
The written test is now offered online.
Please make sure that you have adequately prepared by going through the Study Guide:
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 Sunday, November 4th 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 payable to Justin Meehan.
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
