Officials Clinic

Posted: November 1, 2013 by gulfboxing in Officials Clinic
Tags: , , ,

As you all know, for the Gulf LBC to sanction events we require dedicated well-trained officials.  We run many shows with too few officials on hand, resulting in referees and judges working many consecutive bouts without rotation or relief.  The Gulf officials do a great job, but this practice is not ideal and can result in fatigue which in turn can possibly lead to incorrect actions or decisions, which we ALL want to prevent.

Thus, it is EVERY Gulf member’s duty to improve the officiating pool as a whole.

There will be a Level I officials clinic, so please identify candidates who are interested and can be trained and dedicate time to improving the sport of amateur boxing.

For new non-athlete members, please coordinate their registrations with Registration Chair Ray Ontiveros.  All members attending the clinic must have a BLUE USA Boxing official’s passbook for the clinic to be valid.

Please see the calendar for detailed information.
