OBRA Officials Training, 2009
We are pleased to announce an upcoming OBRA officials training for new and novice officials. If you have ever thought about becoming a cycling official, now is your opportunity to get introductory training. We will be covering core material as well as material specific to referees and judges. Through both classroom instruction and an outdoor mock-race field session, you will learn the basic skills need to officiate at OBRA events. During the mock-race session, new officials will be mentored by veteran officials.
We request that every OBRA team plan on having at least one team member trained to be an official.
