Tournaments may apply for a waiver through this form if they wish to utilize non-dedicated TDs. The application is due 2 weeks before the tournament date, but later applications will be accepted on a case by case basis. Waivers are not granted automatically and will only be granted in certain circumstances, such as with:- A shortage of referees in the region where the event is being held and the TD would need to serve as a head referee for at least one game- A new team that does not have non-playing staff who could fill the role of a dedicated TD
The goal of the waiver program is to offer additional support and flexibility to tournaments who do not have the capacity or resources for a dedicated TD. Those who are approved for a waiver will need to have a pre-event meeting with a USQ staffer at least one week prior to the tournament date.
