For all of you who are or would like to be an Alpine Official, the clinics will be held on Sunday Dec. 4th.
Officials need to be certified to serve as Chief of Race or Start and Finish Referees (known as Jury Advisors) and those certifications need to be updated every two years. Chief of Courses do not need certification although there is a clinic for that.
The club offers one work credit to those who join USSA as an Alpine Official and attend the clinic. The clinics for CR, CC, and JA are from 1- 5 in the afternoon.
