Please volunteer to judge at state quals on February 23rd and 24th and NSDA quals on April 6th and 7th. This is the best time of year to come out and judge. You will see students selected by their coaches to represent their schools to earn the right to go to state and nationals!
Sign up to judge here.
To judge at state quals, you need to take a test that can be accessed here. You just need to login and select regional qualifying and state tournament from the drop down menu. The test takes about a half hour. You can have the handbook open in another tab. Please note one important difference between the handbook and the test: the correct answer on the test is that you must say stop at 10:15 or 7:15 (depending on the event), but the handbook says 10:30. Please select the 10:15 option for those questions.
We know this is a lot to take in, so if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Ian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteering to judge at these two tournaments will keep the tournament running on time and ensure that your kids get home at a reasonable hour! (Sadly, a tournament was canceled midway through last week in part because of lack of judges.) Kids love to see parents at the tournament cheering them on. It provides another level of support for our kids who might be quite nervous at such high level tournaments. Even if it’s only for a round or two, the coaches and the tournament would really appreciate your help.
