Mini Clinics

Postby Blayr » Tue Jan 27, 2015 10:35 am

My father in law is climbing the ladder effectively in the world of football officials. He has done some Cowboy practices, some division II NCAA games, and has his own crew for 5A games.

His only road block is that he is unwilling to spend money on himself to help advance his career. I want to pay to send him to a camp that will look good on his resume. Do you have any suggestions or know how to access information on upcoming camps and their prices/dates?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

As an expert I do not endorse or get paid by any of the football clinics, However they are excellent for learing to become a better official and to enhance one's network of officials.  The Three that seem to be the more popular ones are Ken Rivera's Reno Football Officials Camp [this is excellent]; the West Texas Football Officials Campts and Dick Honig's Great Lakes Football Officials Clinic.  Below is a list of camps from 2009. The 2010 list is not yet complete as of this date.  The below information and contact information is your best starting point.  The costs vary from $100 - $1,800 plus travel.  The following link will take you to current websites for officiating camps and clinics  http://www.sgvfoa.com/links.htm
