Officials Clinics

Ken Gray, Officials Chair

Please contact the instructors to reserve a spot in the clinics.

These clinics are for new and advancing officials and will also serve as part of 2017 re-certification requirements. Officials should review their OTS account to see if a clinic is required to re-certify.
