Immediately following each of your games, you'll be accompanied by your evaluator for a video critique of your floor work.  Plus, participate in a panel discussion involving all aspects of the officiating experience.   Ask questions!  Hear war stories!  Make new friends!  Be seen! Experience a positive, friendly, supportive atmosphere with officials from all over the country!
