We are having a big tournament at the end of May and will need some more officials.
We have a good cadre of 35 dedicated members who have helped referee in the past , but we need 7-10 more because not all of them are available for the tournament. We will provide the training and supervision to walk you through what is required to referee a match. If you love the game, understand the basics of the game, and are willing to give this a try it would be truly appreciated. After the training, if you decide it is not for you then that is O.K. We have had individuals complete the training and then decide not to do it for one reason or another. That was perfectly fine. You must feel comfortable in a referee position.
The USAPA has developed a great video which shows the basics of officiating. Please give it a look, 18 minutes, and decide if this interests you. Your participation will help the club, and also benefit you as a player who will be knowledgeable.
Please us the link below and scroll down to access the video:

Good luck with this and I hope you can help us. Do not let the detailed scoring discourage you; we can show you an easier way and then you can progress into the one they show on the video.
Please contact me if you are interested in becoming part of our referee team.
Thank you, Marty Hoffman, Referee Coordinator
