Life on the Water in the West


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


  1. Besides Jim for Safety and Owen for TC, what is the contact information to RSVP for northern CA judges and trained driver clinics?
