2020 MEN’S REFEREE AVAILABILITY FORMS – VARSITY & CLUB
It is extremely important that officials follow the below instructions for completing the form in order for their submission to be recorded properly. The referee availability form is due no later than the date listed if a referee wants to be considered for assignments.
Please review the following instructions before completing the availability form:
1. When completing your availability form it is imperative that you include your full last name, first initial and preference number for each event on THAT DATE you select for each weekend. Example, John Smith’s first choice for a particular weekend should be listed as “Smith, J 1” and his second choice as “Smith, J 2” in the space provided after the event. If he is only selecting one event on a weekend it should still be listed as “Smith, J 1” in the space provided after that event.
*** Additionally, please be sure to include how you are willing to travel by including your last name, first initial next to the appropriate line for EACH weekend you are available to officiate. Your two options are: “you are willing to fly or drive” or “you are only willing to drive.” Please DO NOT book any flights until institutions have declared their intent to participate in the fall, the season schedule is confirmed and you receive approval from the Coordinator of Officials or the CWPA League Office. This will likely occur by the beginning of August due to the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19.
2) Referees should include their Alma Mater as well as listing any family members (coaches or student-athletes) currently competing at a CWPA institution in water polo.
3. Any referee planning to work a CWPA league event must first pass the NCAA Rules Test prior to the start of the season (unless already completed prior to the men’s season). The NCAA test is available through Arbiter for varsity officials. Club officials may request a link to a free online test. When you have successfully completed the test please copy your score and email: firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Any CWPA official that wishes to be considered for nomination to officiate at the NCAA Championship must have be selected to referee a CWPA varsity league championship. Selections are based on game evaluations, experience, coaches’ evaluations and recommendations of the CWPA Technical Committee.
If you have any questions, contact the league office at 610-277-6787. Otherwise, use the following links to access the on-line referee availability forms:
