Difficulty Judging Clinic

Attention All Volunteers, Potential Volunteers, Judges and Potential Judges!!!

The OCF is happy to announce a Difficulty Judging Clinic for the upcoming OCF Difficulty season. This clinic will focus on Difficulty only and will expand on information that was given to anyone that participated in the Bouldering judging clinic held in 2017. The clinic will be facilitated by George Richard, an experienced OCF Jury President.

The clinic will be held on Wednesday March 21, 2018 at 7:00 pm at Aspire Climbing Gym – 104 Bronte St N, Milton, ON L9T 2N5

The clinic is for those volunteers who would like to learn to judge Difficulty Climbing—top rope and lead climbing. It will be approximately 1 hour in length. If you have already judged in the past and would like a “refresher” you are also more than welcome to attend the clinic.

Please email Lorraine Winger if you plan to attend, so that we can keep track of numbers.

***N.B If you want to judge a difficulty competition you must attend a judging clinic that the OCF offers or have attended a prior judging clinic run by the OCF.
