2021 Mat Officials OEP (Officials Education Program) Training

To: ALL Mat officials
Covid 19 has brought us to doing OEP training online. The following 4 links are OEP Training Videos developed by Tim Pierson and the USWOA.  These videos are designed to help newer officials develop skills for officiating Greco and Freestyle matches at all levers.  The training is also designed so that experienced officials can improve officiating skills and keep abreast of changes in rules and philosophy.
