Refereeing Clinic with Justin Meehan, June 9, 2013 E-mail
The USFA Oregon Division presents "The FOC Rules & Refereeing Clinic with Justin Meehan" on June 9, 2013. Justin is a Certified Referee Instructor and has been involved with fencing for over 25 years in many roles: competitor, coach, club owner, referee, and more. He is a recognizable face to anyone who competes at the national level, and is a frequent referee at major regional events such as the Leon Auriol Open and Battle in Seattle. Justin is also head coach at the Oregon Division club Northpointe Fencing (formerly Vega Fencing.)

This clinic will be of great interest to all fencers as well as parents - not just those interested in refereeing. It will cover the rules as they are written, as well as a discussion of how the rules are currently being interpreted and applied by referees. The clinic will be in a lecture format, with live fencing demonstrations to reinforce the material. The clinic will run from 9am to 6pm on Sunday June 9th at Northpointe Fencing in Vancouver, WA, 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 rule book and study guide, which can be found on There will be a few slots available for referee candidates wishing to be observed during the Oregon State Games the following weekend (June14-16).
