Football Officiating Clinic May 2018

The Ruletool Academy clinic intends to give all football officials in Europe (and beyond) a valuable and fun learning experience. Over the weekend, we’ll cover rules, philosophy, mechanics and everything else that makes for a good official. This is a  ‘neutral’ clinic and supporting IFAF/NCAA rules and IAFOA mechanics.
