Event Planning Resources

Budget Templates

We strongly recommend that you create an event budget at the start of the planning process. This budget should list all costs and all sources of revenue. There are many different ways to set up the budget document, and you should use a format that works best for you.

We have provided two different sample templates to use when creating your budget. The basic budget template is a simple spreadsheet with no specific items listed, that you can use to fill in with your event costs and revenue. The itemized budget template is a more detailed spreadsheet that lists specific items that are commonly budgeted for tournaments. Even if your tournament does not use all these items, we recommend reviewing the itemized budget to help brainstorm your event costs.


At the bottom of this section, you can find various checklists that may be helpful to you during the tournament planning process. All checklists available to download in pdf format.

Please feel free to send us an email at  f you have suggestions for additional checklists to be created!

Event Incident Log

Tournament Directors should use this log for personal reference to keep track of any disciplinary actions that need follow-up during or after the event, including incidents where a player receives a straight red card, or other violations of USQ’s Fair Play Policy or Member Code of Conduct.

We recommend that TDs who use this log print multiple copies in order to have enough space to note all incidents that may arise.

Field Manager Guide

Field managers are among the most important volunteers at a tournament. At the bottom of this page, you can find a guide that details the responsibilities of the field manager position, as well as some common field manager "dos" and "don'ts."

Please feel free to share this guide with your field managers!

Medical Staff Guide - Contacting and Booking Medical Staff

We have a guide to booking medical staff in the TD Training Manual but a PDF version of the information is also available. 

Referee Evaluation Business Card Template

USQ encourages captains, players, spectators and tournament staff to submit feedback regarding their referees. In order to facilitate this process, TDs can print and distribute business card-sized copies of the below template, which is a QR code that links to the Referee Evaluation form.
