BADGER REGION BOARD APPROVES IN-GOOD-STANDING POLICY FOR OFFICIALS

The Badger Region board of directors approved in May an “In Good Standing” policy for all officials to be assignable, receiving mentoring and be eligible for advancement moving forward.

The criteria listed below must be met on an annual basis. If a referee cannot meet these criteria, he or she may apply to the Officials Chair for a one-season waiver to become inactive, which will not be unreasonably withheld.

  • Annual USAV Full Membership
  • Annual USAV background screen
  • Annual Safesport Training
  • $25 annual Badger Region Ref/Scorer fee
  • Complete and submit annual Independent Contractor and W-9 forms
  • Completion of all required USAV modules assigned by Badger Region
  • Attend the Badger Region officials’ preseason meeting (in person or online) or a new referee clinic.
  • Conduct themselves with an appropriate level of professionalism and are not under review or hold sanctions from the Badger Region Ethics & Eligibility Committee.
  • Official has been assigned to and has or will be working two separate Badger Region-hosted events (Badger Region Championships, Badger Region Power League, Badger Region Qualifier, Dale Rhode) or WVC events or other single day-approved events. An official can also meet requirements by working in a mentoring role at two events.
    — The official does not have to work both days of a two-day event.
    ­— The two days need to be from two separate events.

    If an official does not officiate or mentor (as assigned by the Badger Region Assignor) at least two Badger Region tournaments in a season, they will be considered to have been inactive for that season (and until they have officiated a tournament in a subsequent season). If an official is inactive for two successive seasons, the official will be required to repeat the certification process, beginning with clinic attendance and practical evaluation before being reinstated and officiating for the Region again. Failing to meet one or more of the following Good Standing criteria will result in “Conditional” status which will affect tournament officiating fees and possibly eligibility to receive assignments. Conditional officials are not considered to be in good standing.

Good standing for advancement

To be considered for advancement AND in good standing in the Badger Region, the referee must meet the criteria outlined below. If a referee cannot meet these criteria they will not be eligible for advancement.

  • Annual USAV Full Membership
  • Annual USAV background screen
  • Annual Safe Sport Training
  • $25 annual Badger Region Ref/Scorer fee
  • Complete and submitted annual IC/W 9 forms
  • Complete and submit annual Independent Contractor and W-9 forms
  • Official has been assigned to and has or will be working two separate Badger Region-hosted events (Badger Region Championships, Badger Region Power League, Badger Region Qualifier, Dale Rhode) or WVC events or other single day-approved events. An official can also meet requirements by working in a mentoring role at two events.
  • Maintain certification as a USAV Scorer.
  • Attend the Badger Region officials’ preseason meeting (in person or online) or a new referee clinic.
  • Conduct themselves with an appropriate level of professionalism and are not under review or hold sanctions from the Badger Region Ethics & Eligibility Committee.

Rationale

  • Important in order to prevent officials from just using the region to become certified and not officiate region events.
  • Perception is that our officials pool increases but the number of “assignable officials” does not.
  • Help the region retain officials to use in region events
  • Officials mentoring can only be scheduled for those officials working Badger Region sanctioned events. Mentors can be scheduled for officials during these events to help make those officials better. All mentors are scheduled by the officials assignor and paid for by Badger Region. Our goal is to make our region officials better and help them towards advancement.
  • This is common in most regions and helps unify policies region to region.
