We have two official's programs available for the 2018 spring season starting the end of February. Below are outlined the two programs.
The first program (on the left side) is called the National Team Credit program or NTC and is designed to give the youth & adults an opportunity to officiate for National Team credits. These credits must be used for either, Schoolboy, Cadet or Junior Duals or the Cadet & Junior Nationals in Fargo.
The second program (right side) is called the Officials Compensation Program or the OCP and is designed to give adults the opportunity to officiate and earn money.
Make sure to sign up to officiate at the tournaments at the red link below
Each week athletes & parents have the opportunity to earn National Team credits that will go towards Schoolboy Duals, Cadet Duals, Junior Duals and Fargo. Below are the steps to earn credits:
Each match you officiate will earn you $1 towards your National Team experience. Parents or other athletes can donate their points at the end of the year to whoever they would like. You need to make sure to purchase your High Performance or Official's card before April 1st or your points will not count that were accumulated before that. Once you have your Official's card or High Performance Card then your credits will begin to count.
It is a requirement to sign up online to officiate at the Utah Greco & Freestyle State Tournament. Only those that register online will have the opportunity to officiate at this tournament and earn credits.
Must have graduated High School. If you are 18 and have not graduated from high school you may still officiate for money but will receive $10/hour.
Questions about either program can be directed to Jeff Newby (801.358.4933), or Dwayne Henry (801.403.5774).
Officials can receive a $200 travel reimbursement for regional/national events but must meet the following criteria:
