Good Evening Everyone.

Please mark your calendars.  We will resume our video and rules question sessions on Monday, 05 Feb 2018.  This will give us approximately two months of discussion before we get heavily into our USAW schedule.

 If you have any questions, please let me know

Good Morning Everyone.

11 July 2017 was our last video and rules question session for this year.  On behalf of Rick Tucci, Zach Errett, Casey Brennan-Goessl, and the entire USWOA staff, we would like to thank each of you for your support and participation in our daily “What is your call” video and “Rules Question” sessions. 

Our daily sessions began on 20 February and it has been quite an educational journey.  We analyzed and discussed 131 situation videos, 131 rules questions, had 56 countries participate, and had more than 80,000 video views on our USWOA webpage and Facebook page.  The goal of these forums was not to determine who was right or wrong, but rather “why” you made the call. 

Your analysis and open dialogue was impressive and educational. We may not have always agreed with the scoring solutions, and that's ok, as many of our situations were very close and potentially had more than one solution.  We hope our daily sessions were as much of a benefit for you as they were for us.

 We are planning to resume our daily situation video and rules questions sessions again, February 2018.  We will make a formal announcement a few weeks in advance of the first video.  We wish each of you the very best refereeing has to offer.

 See you on the mats. 

Tim Pierson
