OPA Referees

Referee Info and Seminars:

The referee seminar cover the basics of the rules of the IPF Technical Rule book to get you familiar with the rules. The Referee exam is based on the IPF Technical Rule book and requires 90% or better to pass. It is recommended you download and go through the rule book if you wish to write the exam.

Below are links to the IPF Technical Rule Book, the List of Approved equipment, and Referee Code of Conduct. These are very important to referees.

Becoming a Referee means taking on responsibilities to help keep OPA meets running by making yourself available to work at meets throughout the year in whatever capacity is needed to ensure a well run meet.

The Referee Facebook page is a way to communicate between OPA Referees. I have also placed all events on the Group Calendar for you to easily find meets, with information. Events can be viewed in the Facebook Calendar.

On the Events in the Webpage Calendar for the meets I have added a link on each event for Referee Schedule for the meet. Please check the different meets and let me know which ones you are available for, as well as which Days or Sessions when multiple days and sessions are being run. I am working on an Online registration form to register but that is taking some time.

Please note, we are not hosting referee seminars at this time
