Entry Level Referee Course

Entry Level Referee Course

 This clinic is for those who would like to become a certified referee and are 14 years of age or older on March 31 of the current year. By taking the clinic, a referee is automatically registered for the current outdoor season with the OSA and does not have to register again until the following year. 

Referees who have successfully completed an Entry Level Referee course do not have to take this course again. HOWEVER, in order to referee in a subsequent year, you must register with the OSA on-line AND attend a Dragons-Specific course.  For more information for returning referees, click here

Participants affiliated with or members of the OGSC will be given priority for seats in the course.  If the course fills, then a priority list will be established in case someone drops out a later date.
