2022 Smack SpikeFest – Providence

February 19-21, 2022

This page contains relevant referee information for 2022 Smack SpikeFest – Providence. We work very hard to include all important information here as it becomes available.

Here’s how you can do your part… If you are officiating at this tournament, read this carefully. If there is something you think is missing, read it again. Be certain you’ve looked at all the applicable links and downloads. If after you’ve done that, something is missing, by all means, drop a line. We’re FAR from perfect and we want to be sure everyone has a hotel room for the weekend and knows where to go and when to be there. But the first thing we do when we get a question is to wonder if we messed (usually at a time when time is of the essence).

Thanks very much….
