Upcoming Race Judges workshops

There are two options to become an IRF Race Judge coming up.

The first option is an online Judges Workshop for new Judges. This is particularly handy for those who wish to become Judges for their local/regional events but never get the chance to attend the face-to-face IRF Judge Workshops usually offered.

The second option is at World Rafting Championships 2022 in BiH at the end of May.
