The Upgrading Process

Once a referee has achieved the 'Initial Certification' in the Officiating Program, a long journey begins towards the successive levels of C, B, & A.

Upgrading of Referees

General

At the C and B levels, the referee requires 5 successful recommendations from at least 2 different assessors (at least one must be a PE/NE) (Provincial Examiner-National Examiner). Only 3 successful recommendations are required if all are given by 2 different NE’s.

Upgrading to C

The level of play must be an inter-club, team or individual tournament /competitive match involving A players. The candidate must have 5 signatures or a combination of 4 signatures and 10 correct decisions in each match and demonstrate competence at this level.

Upgrading to B

The level of play must be a competitive match equivalent to the quarterfinals of a major Provincial Championship (Open Event) or the early rounds of the Canadian Squash Championships (Open Event). The candidate must give a minimum of 15 correct decisions in each match and demonstrate competence at this level.

Upgrading to A

The candidate must obtain 5 successful recommendations from competitive matches equivalent to those involving the top 20 Canadian men or the top 10 Canadian women (PE / NE's shall determine equivalencies). At least 2 of the recommendations must be of an A (very difficult) level, with the remaining recommendations being of an A (difficult) level. The candidate must give a minimum of 20 correct decisions in each match, of which a sufficient number are deemed to be difficult by the assessor, and demonstrate competence at this level. At least 2 of the successful recommendations must be given by two different NE's, one of them must be an A recommendation. The remaining three recommendations may come from any PE who is also an A Referee.

 

Upgrading of Markers

General

To be upgraded to a higher level, the marker requires 5 successful recommendations from at least two different assessors (at least one must be a PE / NE). Only three recommendations are required if all are given by NE’s. The grade of marker corresponds to the maximum allowable number of errors a marker may make during a match (e.g., a level 2 Marker will be expected to make no more than 2 errors in any match).

Upgrading to 2 and 3

There is no minimum level of play required for upgrading to levels 2 and 3.

Upgrading to 1

The level of play required for upgrading to level 1 must be equivalent to the third round of play at the Canadian Squash Championships (Open Event). One successful recommendation must be given by a PE / NE who observes the candidate solely in the role of marker.
