The new WFTDA-Recognized Clinic program is designed to support high-quality independently run officiating clinics where organizers build their own curriculum and event structure.
A WFTDA-Recognized Clinic is hosted by an individual, group, or league and is recognized by WFTDA as containing elements that align with WFTDA’s officiating education.
These clinics are fully funded by their host, who also retains all profits. The host may select any instructors they choose (they do not need to be WFTDA instructors) and the content of the clinic is provided by the instructor and/or host.
The WFTDA does not provide any clinic content or resources to be taught for a WFTDA-Recognized Clinic.
