Clinics are a great way to keep up with the latest rules in our sport. They’re also a good way to meet with other officials and discuss thoughts and opinions. Clinics do not have to be classroom-style meetings either. An optional mentoring program is also available. Mentoring can take place on-site during a tournament and is usually one-on-one or small group format. Contact Tom Nathan for more details.
The Western Region will pay the $10 AWSA clinic fee for regular and senior officials, and assistants who plan on upgrading (including State/Regional/National Safety). Exactly how this happens depends on your area. Assistant judges do not need to attend a clinic to maintain their ratings, only to upgrade.
We added single event clinic instructors and testers (Senior judge in slalom only). Clinic instructors are not required to pay a clinic registration fee and receive full credit towards clinic maintenance requirements. A clinic may also count as one of the required tournament maintenance credits. If you are interested in becoming a clinic instructor or tester (or both), please contact Tom Nathan
