This week you can be a part of something special! We love pickleball and are so thrilled to be able to share this week’s video with you because of what it can do for the sport of pickleball as a whole. We know trying to referee for the first time can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! This Official USAPA Referee Quick Start is a no-pressure video that is short, easy to understand and we hope will eliminate any fear and pressure about reffing. It will give you the basics of refereeing for pickleball, with easy to understand 3D graphics, so that you can get out there, have fun, and get started practicing the skills immediately. Referees hold a really important role in the sport (and not just for big tournaments) and we believe you can totally do it!
But there is more! You might not realize it, but when you really know the rules of pickleball you will become a better player. And we all know that for the sport to keep growing we need more referees. You just might not have realized that it will actually improve your own game. And because the video boils it down to the basics, it is easy to start now. Go to www.usapa.org/referee for a referee handbook, guides, the complete rules, a rules quiz and information about a full referee certification program. The USAPA has all the resources you need to help you succeed! Improve your own game and help grow the sport by watching this video and giving reffing a try!
