Mat and Pairing officials,
Several members of the USWOA Board of Directors, USAW Staff and State Directors worked very hard on developing a policy of making sure that all working officials get housing and a stipend for national level tournaments. It is a good policy but it has some stipulations.
#1 You must work the all the sessions of the tournament. Yes, we realize the are some exceptions because of personal commitments but it is your responsibility to notify the head official for that tournament. It also not a way for coach/officials to ref a few matches, spend most of the time coaching to expect a room and a share of the stipend.
#2 If you sign up for a tournament, the LOC makes room arrangements for you and you are a "no show" you can expect to be sanctioned and not receive a room a tournaments in the future. Yes, we again know that their can be extenuating circumstances but it is the officials responsibility to notify the head official of your change of plans. This is to prevent the LOC from getting stuck with the expense of unused rooms. This is a simple being courteous and good practice.
#3 Rooming with children under 18, Safe Sport regulations
if you are traveling with your own child who is under the age of 18, another official who is not part of your immediate family cannot share the room. You will bear the cost of 1/2 the room since all housing for mat and pairing officials is based on double occupancy. Furthermore tournaments cannot offer rooms for any official under the age of 18.
