National Dodgeball Officials Certificate Program

Level 1​: Rule Knowledge

The first level of the National Foam Dodgeball Officials Program tests your basic understanding of the rules. This self-taught level allows an individual the opportunity to read the rule book at their leisure followed by taking the online test (multiple attempts allowed).

Once you have passed the Level 1 online test you are now registered as an official and will be given a passbook. Every match you officiate has to be recorded in the passbook. After you have officiated 30 matches and obtain a letter of recommendation from your local league coordinator, you can apply to the Provincial Chief Official to be upgraded to a Level 2.
