Moving forward with our mission and vision to serve the collegiate game, the NISOA National Referee Academy certification, and recertification has taken a monumental step forward to serve our customers.  We are looking at multiple sites in the country to minimize travel, and expenses to participating referees, and instructors. The program will consist of a one day yearly program aimed at the qualified referees according to policy.  Qualified referees will earn a national “current year badge” at the conclusion of the session when all the requirements listed in the National policy are met.  I am looking forward to your participation.

Best regards,

George Noujaim, Director

      • Wondering when date/locations of the clinics will be made available? The summer is starting to fill up quickly with other assignments, clinics, and vacations – would be great to be able to secure a date and location for the clinic. Thanks!

    • The criteria to be a National Referee is posted on the National Referee Page.. If your chapter hosts, any member of the chapter may have an opportunity to participate.

  1. Will the late fee on the NRP application be waived as the dates of the clinics just came out?
