The State Referee Committee has reviewed the content of the on-field recertification clinic. Because each clinic is unique and based on actual game situations and is taught by different instructors with different perspectives, referees may choose to complete 2 on-field clinics to satisfy their 4 hour training requirement. We have lifted the restriction in Game Officials which prevents registration from two on-field clinics.
