Every mat and pairing official should have a good idea on the workings of the Clock Controller used by Track Wrestling at USAW events. Click Here  to go to the TrackWrestling page with clock information.  In the menu on the far left click on  "Controller Download" to download the software to your computer where you can practice working with the clock controller.  UnZip the file and make sure you have an updated version of Java running on your computer.  There is a Java link in the folder downloaded from TW.

Listed below are the USWOA Officials Education Program (OEP) sessions for the 2019 season. This year we have four (4) national, seven (7) regional, and two (2) state OEPs. All sessions will be conducted a day prior to the start of competition. The full day OEP sessions do not replace the referee’s clinic at these competitions and there is a limit on the number of participants for each session. 
All sessions will begin at 09:00 am local time.
All out of area participants should plan to arrive the night before. USAW will provide rooms the night before each session for all OEP participants. OEP participants staying for the associated tournaments would then go to either tournament housing (if provided) or they will need to arrange lodging for the tournament.
