Officiate and Volunteer

HOUSING

Limited housing is available. Priority is given to officials and field managers who are traveling from out of region and willing to work at least 6 hours each day. Those interested should indicate that they would like to be considered for housing on their sign-up form and USQ staff will follow up with information on what is available.

SIGN UP FORMS

All officials and volunteers receive a confirmation email when they sign up. If you did not receive your confirmation email, contact eventvolunteers@usquidditch.org regarding volunteers and membership@usquidditch.org for officials.

OFFICIALS DETAILS

Per USQ policy, officials will be compensated as follows:

  • Certified head referees: $20 per game
  • Certified lead assistant referees: $10 per game
  • Certified snitch runners: $8 per game

Teams will be assigned to provide referees during several game slots. If a team does not fulfill their referee obligations or their referees do not show up for their games as assigned, they will be subject to forfeit for all remaining games of the tournament.

Lunch will be provided for officials who work 6 or more games in one day. Those who officiate 5 or more games in unpaid positions (either as a snitch runner, AR, SR, scorekeeper, timekeeper, and/or goal judge) are eligible to receive a free t-shirt.
