At tournaments, referees are required to check-in with the assignor at the referee tent prior to each assignment. Any modification of this policy will be covered during the pre-tournament referee meeting and/or in a daily update email.
Referees must check-in 45 minutes prior to their first assignment of the day. This is necessary so that we have time to get everyone checked in, time to replace any missing referees and to allow each referee crew sufficient time to conduct a thorough pre-game conference. If you have back-to-back assignments, you may check-in for those assignments at the same time. If you have additional assignments that day, you may check-in 30 minutes before the assignment.
The referee check-in chart is used to verify referee attendance at their assignment. If a referee does not check-in prior to their assignment, they will not be paid.
