This will be the 17th year for this clinic and it has been the starting point for hundreds of officials to launch their careers to be the best high school official they can be and if they so desire it will put them in a position to move up to the college ranks. IT ALL STARTS HERE!

The game is changing; technology and video replay are part of our game and with officiating. We will have video sessions and breakdown of one of your games at this clinic. The clinic is really designed for the Jr. High to High School referee who wants to get better and create a better opportunity and schedule for themselves.
