The State Referee Committee is pleased to recognize those referees that have made the effort to distinguish themselves by upgrading to a higher grade. In addition, the Committee is asked each year to send referees to a number of regional tournaments, such as the Region 1 Championships, Presidents Cup, and the Olympic Development Program. Our delegations showcase the best referee talent the state has to offer. In addition, these regional tournaments provide our top referees with access to national-level instruction and assessment opportunities.
