Referee Clinic with Abbas Fadel
Come and join us for an informative Referee Clinic led by Abbas Fadel, certified referee instructor and highly respected national referee.
Indiana Fencing Academy
109 Lincolnway West
Mishawaka, IN 46544
Doors will open at 9:45 AM EDT with the instructional seminar to commence at 10:00 AM. The clinic is anticipated to last 6 to 7 hours followed by an informal competition during which Dr. Fadel can observe the directing abilities of those desiring to be practically evaluated at that time.
To address the severe shortage of certified referees in Indiana. A certified referee must be present to serve on the bout committee of any tournament at which a USAFencing rating can be awarded. To become a certified referee one must meet the following criteria:
- 1) Master the course materials available at:
(Note: link works in Chrome, may not work in older versions of Safari)
- 2) Attend an official FOC-sanctioned clinic.
- 3) Pass the online “written” examination by obtaining 90% correct on both the general section and one or more weapon specific sections. (To direct at NAC’s, certification in at least two weapons is needed.) A referee receives a rating of “P” in each weapon passed. Further rating improvements (1-10) can be obtained by being evaluated in a practical. It is recommended that one take and pass the the written examination prior to the practical.
- 4) Give a practical demonstration of one’s refereeing abilities while being observed by a certified referee instructor, Abbas Fadel, in this case. (Dr. Fadel is also willing to observe clinic attendees direct at later upcoming tournaments.)
$75.00 payable by cash or check to Abbas Fadel at the door.
