End of Season Certifications and what officials need to do to certify for 2021; note that Table Workers are not included in this list. There are three certified Table Workers for 2021: Karen Lynne (ASH), Amanda Bridon (RSRC), Karen Callihan (TFC) – all others will need to take the class and test next year.

Sample Hosting Team Letter for Parent Rep – note that this is an MSWord document so that you can change it

Training Record – This is what goes on the back of trainee’s cards. If your trainee did not get a card, you are welcome to print this and have them use the appropriate one as a training record. Note that trainees MUST pass the test prior to walking or that walk does not count.

Note that the testing links cannot be found online.  Officials should receive a link for either the class or test, depending on what they need. If you did not get the link, email officials@gralva.com.

NOTE TO TEAMS: Please do not send too many officials to training. Each team can only support no more than three Clerks, Starters, and Referees. For Strokes and Turns, you can only train a total of 6 officials per year without inconveniencing other teams.
