The Detroit Curling Club will conduct clinics Dec. 16-17 to train game timers and on-ice officials for the USA Curling Junior National Championships at the club in Jan. 27-Feb. 3.

“We need lots of timers, like every Nationals, so we urge club members to attend the clinics and work the games. We’re also reaching out to our fellow clubs in the Great Lakes Curling Association, and even our community at large,” said Jim Morris, club president.

The training will comprise separate clinics Dec. 16-17, 2017, for Level I and Level II Officials.
Both clinics run from 8:30 am to5:30 pm and will be led by Donna Statzell, a Level IV official with the US Curling Association. The cost is $25 for each clinic and includes lunch.

Registration for all courses is handled through the USCA National Office Anyone interested in

Level I officials enjoy a front-row view of championship games as Game Timers. The Game Timer is responsible for operating the time clock on an assigned sheet. The operator must be thoroughly familiar with the equipment, as well as the rules governing the use of time clocks. In addition, Level I officials gain experience as End-Ice Observers working on the “other side of the glass.” Rules, procedures, and the manner in which the duties of Level I officials fit in the over-all structure of officiating at a curling competition will be emphasized throughout training.

- No ice time is required for the Level I course.
- Participants are highly encouraged to download the WCF CurlTime software onto their laptops and bring with them to the training.

Level II officials are responsible for in-the-moment decision-making while working as On-Ice
Supervisors, Timing Supervisors and, at some events, Hog Line Officials. As the decisions made by Level II officials can impact the outcome of a game or even the event, strong knowledge of the rules paired with good interpersonal skills is essential. Training for Level II officials emphasizes procedures, rules, mechanics and case studies of actual game situations and officiating decisions. Level II officials work directly with Chief Umpires and Deputy Chief Umpires to further hone their skills during events.
