The quality of officials is quite simply the single most important factor in a great tournament series. Where others cut corners, we go the extra mile to help our officials.
We believe everyone must respect the efforts of our officials, and all of the coaches, parents, and players are held accountable.
We believe officials that show up on time, work hard on proper mechanics, give an effort up and down the court and lastly, have a genuine pride in their performance deserve positive recognition.
With that in mind, we have a high level of expectation in our officials to either maintain a level of excellence and certification, or newer officials striving to become.
Assignment of games are done with certified officials or those aspiring to achieve certification, and used on the reftown.com website.
All officials are assigned by Bruce Bird and Lloyd Martinez.
Payment: $25.00 per official for tournament games (2-person crew), and $20.00 per game (per 3-person crew). $20.00 per official for league games. NON-CERTIFIED OFFICIALS are paid $15.00 and used only on an as-needed basis when certified officials are not available.
Officials are paid the Monday following the event. We verify attendance of games, hours worked, and issue check accordingly.
All varsity divisions are assigned 3-person crews for all league, and tournament games.
