2015-16 OFA Referee Development Program (Stream A/B)

The OFA Referee Development Program for this upcoming season aims to continue the focus on mentorship and quality of refereeing in the province, while augmenting our capacity to foster as many candidates as possible through to final certification.

Streams A and B of the Referee Development program are aimed at two general categories of individuals: Fencers working on armband requirements, and parents/supporters. The Workshop(s) aim to establish a foundation on tournament format and execution, and the roles of fencers and parents/supporters at events.

The first Stream A/B Referee Workshop will be held on Saturday, November 7th, 2015 from 1:00pm-6:00pm in Kitchener, Ontario. To register, please follow this link.
