On occasion of this year’s German Championships, four new referees from the DBU were trained and promoted to the EPBF referee group.
Bad Wildungen is the location where currently the German Championships for adult players are taking place. On that occasion, the DBU has requested a referee examination and instruction course from the EPBF. The EPBF Referee Instructor Thomas Overbeck has made his way rot Bad Wildungen and met Jasmina Gollas, Sarah Walecki, Christian Knieriemen and Christian Erfling on site.
All four German referees had already passed the newly installed EPBF rules course online and have proven to have a good base of substantiated rules knowledge. The test was about personal facts, capability of communicating in English language and skills on and off the table.
All four candidates have not only convinced their trainer but also surprised him with their high tech level of referee knowledge and behaviour. The EPBF is happy to welcome four new referees to their group which will definitely be an asset for future events.
