The WFTDA Officiating Clinics are a two-day immersion into all things officiating with both classroom and track time, culminating in a put-it-into-play scrimmage. With a new rule set it’s time for everyone, even veteran officials, to re-engage with the rules. This year’s clinic cycle will offer a host of new materials specifically designed to work with the WFTDA’s new 2013 Rules of Flat Track Roller Derby. WFTDA Officiating Clinics are geared towards officials that have six or more months of experience, and knowledge of WFTDA rules, practices, and solid skating skills. Officials planning to participate in WFTDA Tournaments are strongly encouraged to attend an Officiating Clinic. WFTDA Officiating Clinics are open to any official regardless of affiliation or certification.
While WFTDA Officiating Clinics are designed to provide officials with the tools and resources needed to officiate modern roller derby, getting to know and understand the officials' side of the sport can be extremely valuable for captains and coaches. We recognize that many skaters and coaches also officiate for their leagues and play a part in recruiting and training officials. A deep understanding of rules and their application benefits the whole sport; therefore, a limited number of seats will be held available for skaters and coaches to attend 2013 WFTDA Officiating Clinics.
The cost of the registration for the North American clinics is $100 USD, and outside of North America the cost will be $125 USD.
Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
