Finding the right camp can reap rewards in your officiating career. Money and time can be wasted if your officiating goals and needs are not properly aligned with the mission of the camp itself. My intention here is to educate you to make an informed decision. The off-season camp should become an integral component in your development as an official and accelerate your progression and improvement as you pursue your officiating goals and dreams.
Is there classroom instruction? Some camp formats only offer classroom instruction and this type of camp is perfect for the less experienced official. Often the Field Training camps complement the training with the classroom to review play situations film and other teaching points. Classroom only camps typically are one day in length and start off with a key-note speaker followed by breakout sessions by position and/or emphasis on a skill such as goal line plays.
Instructor to Student Ratio? Just like in a normal class room this ratio can have an impact on your ability to receive feedback and individualized attention. Ask about the number of clinicians and the expected number of trainees. Live play camps will typically limit the number of students in order to maximize the number of snaps and tailor the personal instruction to the student.
Equipment: If this is your go first camping trip I recommend having the most basic camping equipment and camping food that you can. Buying quality camping supplies and equipment is something you will never regret. Quality camping equipment is vital if you are planning to venturing into the woods or the mountains. Your outdoor camping equipment and supplies is only as good as the conditions they are designed for. If you are shopping for discount camping equipment it is very important that you shop with a reputable dealer. So if you love to camp or just beginning to go camping in style remember to look first for high quality equipment and supplies. Remember to get the full benefit from your outdoor camping equipment and supplies is to keep them clean and serviced. When looking after your outdoor camping equipment and supplies then they will serve you over a great number of camping fun.
