Assignments & Required Paperwork

1. A reminder, this event is NOT the same event run by NCR. Please do not double-book yourself between these two events.

2. Your application is NOT a guarantee of assignment. We have half the number of courts on Saturday that we do on Sunday, so it will be the norm that officials work one wave on Saturday and All Day on Sunday.

3. YOU are responsible for ensuring you have submitted all the required paperwork listed on our Independent Contractor page. Assignments and payments are contingent on the completion of these requirements.

4. If we do not have a current SafeSport/Abuse Prevention training certificate on file, you would have received an email from Robyn containing instructions on how to obtain this certification. This training is REQUIRED to work juniors event.

5. Officials' assignments are sent via email. Please confirm with a reply indicating you are "Good to Go" after reviewing your schedule.

6. Brad is the primary assignor for the NorthStar Presidents Day Challenge, please contact him first for any questions/issues.

7. If your schedule changes while onsite, please contact Robyn with your updated match count by the next morning.
