    • A policy is being developed by the National Director of Assessment and should be posted within two weeks.

  1. I would think that National Assessors should be required to attend one of those clinics at a minimum.

    There has been no formal training sessions for Assessors in forever.

  2. Will the PPT be offered and is it required at the clinic? I know I’ll have several opportunities to take a PPT before these academy dates. If it’s required to take a PPT at the clinic, I may pass on other available tests. Myself and others may want to plan around this. Thanks in advance.

    • You can take at any location you desire in lieu of clinic which may not have depending on location thanks

      • Thanks for the quick reply. That will help, especially if I travel a nice distance to one of the clinics: it would be nice to pack light!

  3. When will an agenda of the clinics be available so that one can start planning travel arrangements (I.E. arrival & departure times)?

    Thanks John

  4. I am interested in officiating college soccer. Would attending one of the mentioned clinics allow me to take my written and fitness assessments?

    • The National Camps are for advanced college officials who have earned the right to move to the top levels of the intercollegiate game. You can join NISOA through a local chapter. They can administer the written test and review the other qualifications. You can also consider attending the Elizabethtown training program.

    • These are the sites for 2012. They were determined by location of current and potential National Referees to limit travel and expenses.
