About EBOA New Referees Clinics

Clinics for new "NOCP Level 1 Referee Candidates" are usually held in September on two consecutive Saturdays. The clinic fee includes an orientation booklet, a whistle and a contribution towards covering the cost of facilities and instructors. The EBOA subsidizes the rest. Places are limited.

Theory and Knowledge

The Theory and Knowledge portion of the clinic includes an exam at the end of the session. Candidates who receive a 70% passing mark on their exam are invited to attend the practical assessments the following Saturday. No refunds are issued for those who do not attain the passing mark.

Practicum and Assessment

For those who have successfully passed the exam, the Practicum and Assessment stage of the clinic is held the following Saturday and includes on-court training.
