2018-19 Clinics to be posted in June.

National clinics for Officials shall be coordinated by the Officials Development Committee (ODC) annually, as finances and resources permit, to facilitate the upgrading or certification of National Officials and to improve the consistency of officiating across the country.

Normally, this will mean one Level 3 clinic each year with a different specialty being offered in rotation. Specialties for Level 3 clinics are Referee, Starter, and combined Meet Coordinator/Recorder/Clerk of the Course. Specialized Long Track or Short Track clinics may be held in each specialty to address exceptional situations. P/TSOs will be polled each year to ensure there is sufficient demand for the proposed clinic. Expenses related to clinic attendance, including manuals, are a P/TSO or individual responsibility. The ODC will appoint all clinic conductors.

P/TSOs may request to host a clinic in a different specialty than that scheduled for that particular season. Speed Skating Canada’s responsibility in such cases would be limited to appointing the clinic conductor. Responsibility for all expenses related to such clinic rests with the hosting P/TSO. Clinic conductors’ expenses are reimbursed at the current SSC rate.
