Level I Officials Clinic: Intro To Speed Skating and Officiating

If there is enough interest expressed I will conduct a Level I Officials Clinic during the Speed Skating Camp: The introductory clinic takes about 3-3.5 hours and will cover the essential aspects of the sport and should answer many question about the sport you may have. The major component involves the need for officiating, the role and specific duties of officials. It will demonstrate that officiating takes place in a team setting, to ensure that we run fair, safe and efficient competitions.

If you are interested, please e-mail  me (Wim) at ewkok1972@gmail.com 

The clinic can be run on anyone of the following mornings of the camp :  Thursday, Friday or Saturday. A sign-up sheet will be available at registration.
