Certified Referee Instructors

Certified Referee Instructors are experienced referees meeting high standards, who are located across the country and are able to give RC-certified refereeing seminars. The content of these seminars ranges from discussion of the rules and their current application, to scenario based discussions of right of way, and the administrative role and responsibilities of the referee. CRIs are available to give seminars across the country. For people who are interested in becoming certified referees, these seminars are a mandatory component of certification. Even if you are not working towards becoming a referee, they are a great opportunity to learn the rules, learn your rights as a fencer, as well as learn about current issues in refereeing. These seminars are open to anyone, including parents. We hope to eventually have a schedule available here of all seminars being held across the country. Many are posted on FRED.

If you are interested in having a seminar in your region, please email referees@usafencing.org in order to contact one of the CRIs listed below.
