Rules & Refereeing Clinic with Mark Stasinos (FOC), September 8, 2012 E-mail

The Oregon Division of USA Fencing presents The Rules & Refereeing Clinic with Mark Stasinos (FOC), who will discuss the fencing rules and how they are interpreted and applied by referees at the national level and beyond. A solid understanding of the rules is essential for all fencers, especially active competitors!

Mr. Stasinos has been involved with fencing for over 40 years in many roles: former USFA Vice President, Pacific Northwest section chair, coach, club owner, referee assigner, national and international referee, and member of the FOC. This clinic will be of great interest to all fencers as well as parents - not just those interested in refereeing. Attendees from outside the Oregon Division are welcome to attend.

The clinic will run from 9AM to 6PM on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at the Northwest Fencing Center in Beaverton, with a break for lunch. Attendance at this clinic fulfills the prerequisites needed for taking the written and practical referee exams. Testing to be a referee is optional, but encouraged. Attendees are encouraged to review the rulebook and study guide, which can be found on Mr. Stasinos also will be present on Sunday Sept. 9th at the Random Youth Cup three-weapon tournament held at NWFC to evaluate referees who wish to apply their new skills.
