Congrats to Ruth Jackson for becoming the latest new USAWA Official. RJ was the first one to undergo the more strenuous requirements to become an official. A couple of years ago the USAWA began requiring practical training after passing the written rules test in order to become a certified official. Ruth just completed her practical training at the USAWA Grip Championships/Dino Gym Record Day earlier this month. She is now listed on the Official’s List, and will receive a 3 year officials card.
