The first referee clinic for the season was held on Saturday, with 38 soon to be top rated referees attending. Referees are an important part of a well run tournament. An insufficient number of trained referees available, can cause critical delays in a tournament. We are fortunate that we have had members attend these clinics throughout the years, creating a strong nucleus. As our tournament continues to grow so does our need for additional referees. For the first time our clinic was attended by members of the Mission Royale and Robson Ranch communities. This community training will provide a good pool of referees for all future tournaments in the Casa Grande area. Participants in this clinic will attend a follow up clinic this upcoming Saturday. Are you interested in joining this group of referees? The Next Beginner Referee clinic is scheduled on January 7th from 3-5 PM at the court pavilion. You do not need to be a "great" player to be a "great" referee. All you need is an understanding of the game and be willing to participate. Training and practice time will be provided for you develop the skills to be a good referee.
Rain Days are not fun at Palm Creek, although they can be productive! This is the perfect time to organize and make room for your soon to be new Holiday presents.
