Joe Ciavattone Sr., the owner of Joe’s Gym, has just passed the USAWA Official’s Exam which upgrades him from a Level 1 USAWA Official to a Level 2 USAWA Official. Level 2 is the highest level of official certification attainable in the USAWA . This gives Joe LIFETIME CERTIFICATION as an official. To be eligible as a Level 2 official, an official must have knowledge of the rules (by passing the Rules Exam) and experience officiating (by serving as an official in over 25 USAWA competitions). There are currently only 11 Level 2 Officials in the USAWA, which makes Joe part of an elite group!
