NISOA Regional Clinic in New Jersey

April 10, 2010
8:00 amto3:00 pm

Regional clinic hosted by ISOAB at Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Start time and duration is subject to change. The clinic is apparently mandatory for officials desiring ISOAB assignments.


We will have Cliff McCrath participating with two athletic directors from Division I schools in a panel discussion. There will be other commissioners from Division II and III at the clinic. This is going to be first. If you like to suggest the topic for the panel please let me know.

In addition there will be games and if you want to officiate and be assessed by NISOA National Assessors please let me know.

This clinic is not an acceptable substitute for the chapter’s annual rules interpretation meeting. The duration of the clinic is approximate.

Contact ISOAB if you plan to attend.
