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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gaining knowledge and feedback about being a professional official.
  • Improving personal skills with youth, parents and coaches
