A new Level 1 USDBF Officials Course has been scheduled for April 17, by Zoom.
This course covers: race organization, program, racing rules and protocol, and the roles and responsibilities of dragon boat officials.
After you have completed this course, you are then required to complete a minimum of two full days of hands-on officiating experience at each station in order to be considered for Level 1 National Certification.
While this class is a first step to becoming a certified USDBF Race Official, it is also a great way to better understand how races work, particularly if you are a coach or steersperson.
Individuals from PDBA Member clubs pay a discounted rate of $95 for this course (normally $120). For more details, see the registration page at USDBF.
