Play begins Friday, March 2 (40+ courts) @ 8a
There will be no pre-tournament meeting on Thursday night, but there will be meetings Friday and Saturday, depending on when referees start.

Referee registration at SportWrench.com. Please be sure to complete information about travel plans and housing needs (we can’t help you unless you tell us your plans).

We have not started accepting referees, but we will need MANY referees. If you are in good standing in your region, have the recommendation of your regional chair, and are available for all three days, there is little reason to think we will not accept you. Current SafeSport and USAV background check are both required.

     Provisional: $27/match
     Regional: $31/match
     Jr National/National: $35/match

Travel reimbursement for USAV Junior National and National referees from outside of the New England Region of up to $150 with submission of airline or train receipt (must be available for all days and available to referee until 5p on Sunday).

Travel reimbursement for USAV Junior National and National officials driving from outside of the New England Region will be determined in advance on a case-by-case basis (must be available for all days and available to referee until 5p on Sunday).

Housing: Provided, double occupancy. Tournament will house referees on Thursday night and, if necessary, Sunday night. Hotel parking reimbursed.

 

HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS

Referees will be housed in several hotels in the area. We wish we could house everyone immediately next to the event. That, alas, will not be possible.

Based on information from SportWrench registration (flying/driving), we will put drivers in hotels with non-drivers. Thanks in advance for drivers assisting out-of-towners with transport to the convention center.

The tournament will pay for hotel parking.

Parking at the event is NOT covered.
