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 the first step in becoming a certified USA Fencing referee. The next step is successful completion of a written exam, consisting of a general section and one or more weapon-specific sections, and a score of 90% or greater is required on each section to be awarded a "P" rating. Once the "P" rating has been earned, the candidate may be evaluated for a numeric rating (1-10) at a tournament.

MINIMUM 10 PARTICIPANTS, maximum 40 participants
Preference given to Region 3 members

Seminar will begin at 10:00am EDT and will run until approximately 6:30pm EDT
