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. Rules are always changing, but the fundamentals of good officiating stays the same. This year’s clinic cycle will offer a host of new materials specifically designed to work with the WFTDA’s new 2014 Rules and Standard Practices of Flat Track Roller Derby. WFTDA Officiating Clinics are geared toward 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 2014 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 close to $100 USD but in the currency of that specific country.
Follow the Clinics on Facebook: Each clinic will have it's own even on the WFTDA Officiating Clinics page. This will provide attendees with a place to talk to each other to potentially set up room/ride shares or social events, as well as a way to speak directly to the instructors that will be assigned to your clinic.
Refunds: There is a processing fee for refunds. If you request a refund within 30 days of registration you will receive a 90% refund. However, provided there is availability registrants can transfer to another clinic for free or may transfer their registration to another individual on their own. Contact pantichrist directly to handle refunds or transfers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
