REFEREE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
The OMAWA Wrestling Referee Mentorship Program is a partnership with local veteran wrestling referees. Participation in the program requires the new referees in training (the mentee) to complete a minimum of 30 contact hours with at least five different veteran referees during the youth wrestling season. This paid training experience will occur under the guidance of certified Nebraska/Iowa veteran wrestling referees at OMAWA hosted events. The mentee’s performance will be evaluated by club coaches and their lead mentor(s) via observation, written, verbal and video feedback.
