The Ohio Cycling Association is planning to put on a entry level clinic for those wishing to become race officials. This will be an entry level (C) clinic with an open book test. Upon completion of the clinic and 70% passing grade on the test participants can purchase their first officials license for $35. Checks, cash or Visa will be required for license application. Due to USOC regulations, they will also need to have a background check and take a webinar on Safe Sport through the USOC website before licenses are issued. The clinic will last for about 4 to 5 hours, covering the disciplines of road, track, cyclocross and mountain bike, as well as officials structure and duties. Participants will need to bring a pencil and notebook to take notes on the presentation. Rulebooks will be provided by USA Cycling.
At this time, we do not have a date and location selected. Please notify Mitch Beckner at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending.
Also, for 2014, the Ohio Cycling Association has decided to provide some additional motivation for brand new and renewing C Level officials. Every Level C race official that works at least 5 races during the year will receive a $100 incentive on top of their normal Officials pay. Apprentice fees will also be available for new officials who are just getting their feet wet or who want to get some experience at larger events.
