December 12 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

AFA Referee Refresher Course Information Sheet

Who is this Clinic For?

Foilists and Sabreists. The Refresher Course is for any referees in the province, specifically Provincial Level referees and those who have started or passed the steps of the Regional Level Stream and are practicing for their practical evaluation. It is for those that are serious about becoming a Regional or Provincial Level Referee. This clinic does not certify you as a referee, but gives you valuable experience!

Expectation of candidates:

  • Participants should be prepared to fence and demonstrate key aspects of fencing
  • Candidates must feel confident in their abilities and ready to accept simulated scenarios

Course Content

  • The idea of a refresher is to not do the Introduction to Refereeing Course (requirement for all referees to become a referee in training) but rather focus on the practical applications of the   rules (priority/right of way).
