Camden County Boathouse was the scene for the latest Philadelphia Regional Referee Academy on Sunday, March 4, 2014.

Eight new Candidates were presented with both classroom and hands-on referee training. The program, organized by Rich Dougert, included discussions on the steps needed to become a referee as well as the Life Cycle of a Referee. USRowing’s John Wik, Director of Referee Programs, presented information on the structure of the National USRowing Referee Corps, Insurance issues for Referees, and SafeSport. Hands-on training included general launch handling as well as demonstrations of Control Commission, the Start, Launch Position and the Finish.

The eight new Candidates included: Joe Eble, Joe Laskowski, Nancy Lauby, Emily Lavender, Chris Rorer, Steve Wahalen, and Nancy Walen. Patrick DeDeyne, a new Assistant Referee, also attended. Look for them working regattas on the Schuylkill River, the Cooper River, and in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Thanks to Rich Dougert, Kate Godwin, John Musial, Mike Murphy, Dennis Smith and Ann and Craig Miller for providing the training at this successful Candidate Program.
