This beginner, novice, and local referee workshop is the first in a series of three for beginning referees and coaches. The intent of this series is to develop an understanding of the judo rules and to develop future referees.

The first session focuses on gaining an understanding of the competition rules and score -keeping.

The second session will focus on mat procedures, control of the match, referee movements, voice, dress code and judge/referee behavior. At the third session we will have videos, mock contests, and a written assessment.

Please wear a judo-gi for these workshops.

So please attend! Everyone should review the rules before coming to the workshop. If you do not have a copy of the rules, go to the
http://www.usjudo.org and than go to referee’s and downloads the rules.

This workshop is open to all judoka with no minimum age. For referee’s certification, the minimum age is fourteen for local referee.

We will be having the clinics in three different locations. If you have any questions please contact Tom Sheehan by e-mail.
