Refs are needed for Pickleball Canada’s National Tournament!
If you are interested in either of the following opportunities email email@example.com with your questions.
Training for both Line Judges and Referees is provided by the club with no expense to the participants.
Want the best seat in the house at a medal match, be a Line Judge! We are looking for about 40 pickleball players who can take the Line Judge exam and attend a 1-hour training session. Your commitment would be for several hours a day for as many days as you want to work during the 6 days of the National Tournament.
We are also looking for referee's to work all matches at the National Tournament. You will need to be an experienced pickleball player who is willing to learn the rules well and apply them on the court. You will need to study the rules, attend a 3-hour session on referee Best Practices and write 3 exams. Then you will need to practise and do a practical evaluation on the court while officiating games to become certified.
