Internordic Umpire meeting

Education of new national umpires within the Nordic Rowing Federations has for some years been done annually via internordic umpiriing seminars thus ensuring that nordic umpires have the same high standard. 

Recently a weekend seminar was held in Gothenburg, Sweden with 30 umpires participating from all the Nordic Rowing Federations. The seminar included among other information the latest news from Worldrowing as well as topics of mutual interest. Later this spring an internordic umpiring class for aspiring new umpires will be held in Copenhagen. If you take interest in becoming a rowing umpire please contact your National Rowing Federation.
