Tennis Saskatchewan administers the Introduction to Officiating Clinic. The clinic specifically presents an introduction to the basic elements of three officiating roles:  the LINE UMPIRE, the CHAIR UMPIRE, and the ROVING UMPIRE.

The Introduction to Officiating Clinic is an entry-level training clinic, designed to introduce new officials to the Rules of Tennis, the Code of Conduct, and the basic techniques of officiating.  It is also recommended for officials who have not been active in the past two years, or who would like a refresher of rules, regulations, and procedures. Participants must be 16 years of age.
