NCLRA Training Schedule

2022 Season

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

General meetingNCLRA Annual General Meeting.
Trainings – they are coming up –  but we have moved them closer to the start of the season so there is less of a gap between the meetings and the first games of.  Everyone needs to be re-certified every season.  We cover new rules, 2022 points of emphasis, interpretations of issues from past seasons as well as any questions that you have.
All training will take place via Zoom/virtual, except for instruction field training in late Feb for Level 1’s in East Bay, North Bay, Sacramento, and possibly South Bay.  
Those dates will be coordinated with clubs like Petaluma, Scorpion, and Folsom.
Each class will be offered twice within approximately a week of each other so that people have a choice of two dates for each session.

Other Locations for On-Field training have not been confirmed, so please make plans to attend this critical field training in Petaluma.

The Zoom Webinar holds up to 100 participants.  If by chance we reach the 100 maximum, please log onto the next scheduled session.  Please show up on time (or early), I will be ready at ~15 minutes before start time to allow for a little happy hour.  In addition, we will be available for more discussion after the training, if you choose to stay.

This webinar will focus on 2021/22 POE, 2021/22 Rule Changes, Updated Protocols, and steps to prepare mentally and physically for the upcoming season.

Again, we would hope every Level 1 and Level 2 official will be attending one of the meetings. In the meantime, please get in shape and please read your rule books. NCAA games are on TV, so feel free to catch some of those to look at mechanics, positioning, communications, etc.

As always, please reach out to me with questions.  Either at 925-998-8585 or

We are all looking forward to making this transition into the season as smooth as possible.  Be safe out there and we look forward to seeing you.
