This 2-day workshop will run from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm on both days and cover the 2022 rules and rule changes as well as the best practices for refereeing matches. It will give you a great background and understanding for the game of pickleball. It also fulfills instructional hour requirements for those that may wish to pursue opportunities to referee locally and in other areas. Tips will be shared to make scorekeeping as easy and efficient as possible. I will provide match clips for participants as well as some match score sheets.
If possible, read (or at least review) the 2022 USAP Rulebook and the 2022 USAP Officiating Handbook. That will make the discussions more clear and straightforward, while helping answer questions. Come with a 1/2 size clipboard if you have one, a pencil and a bit of note paper. This workshop will help you understand the game and rules much better, both for your own knowledge or if you wish to become a USAP referee at any level.
We will be seeing more and more tournaments coming to the Treasure Valley and they will need referees. There will be at least 2 or 3 tournaments this coming summer, and your help would make them so much better.
