Teens! Interested in getting rated as a referee?
There is an online referee clinic. The path to becoming a rated referee including taking a class (now offered online), passing the exam (taken on your own time), and referreeing and being observed at a sanctioned event. If you are interested in doing the online class, Lisa Campi-Sapery, long time friend to North Carolina Fencing, and Coach Gerhard, is hosting an online referee class. Details and registration is available here: https://www.askfred.net/clinics/3bdb85d9-a391-469e-a51c-e0dc616d9d32
