Now is your chance to get licensed as a USA Cycling Official!
MBRA to coordinate and host a USA Cycling Officials Level C Clinic on June 24, 2012 starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending in the early afternoon. The event is being hosted at Zingerman's Events on fourth (with some Zingerman's goodies served during the clinic) just down the street from the Deli (map and parking).
Officiating is not only a way to help support racing in Michigan, but a way to make a little money. Officials earn from $70-$100 per day at a typical local race. Half-day events are half that, but bigger events can pay up to $200. And your travel mileage is reimbursed, too!
If you are interested, please RSVP to John Sammut (see below) so materials can be ordered for the clinic.
This “Introduction to officiating” clinic will be followed by an open book exam. A passing score of 70% correct or better complete the requirements to be licensed as a Level C USAC road, mountain bike and track official. The cost for the seminar is $35 and includes your 2012 USA Cycling Level C Official license fee, course materials, and the test. The Zingerman's goodies are free!
For more information or to RSVP please contact John Sammut. You can find additional information on the USA Cycling Officials Program website.
