NIRSA Region III Flag Football Officials Workshop

DATE: Saturday, September 29-Sunday, September 30, 2018

LOCATION: The University of Dayton Stuart Field and RecPlex




This workshop is specifically designed for beginner, intermediate, and advanced officials to increase their skills both as an official and as future professional. Attendees will not only return to their campus a better official, but a better teacher as well. To assist with accomplishing this goal, clinicians will be campus recreation professionals who will draw from a wealth of experience as flag football instructors to teach, evaluate and mentor each attendee on a personal level.

Space is limited to the first 45 students that register. Students and staff from any institution of higher education are welcome! Registration fees will cover dinner and lodging on Saturday night (4 students per room, 2 double beds), and breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Participants will receive copies of all training materials as well as a registration gift. The workshop will begin at 12:00pm on Saturday and end around 5:00pm on Sunday.
