Officials Assignment Grids
Thank you all for your hard work - you are appreciated! We hope you'll join us again next year for the Big City Luau!
Tournament Guide Sent to Teams
The matches on Sunday Jan 28 that do not have a work team will be using a simplified scoresheet developed by MVOA The video here covers the usage of this sheet.
Use the playing captains to bring scoresheets back/forth from their coaches so you do not need to go up/down the stand during the match.
NOTE: at the bottom of the scoresheet there is a space to put the Court #, Match Time, and winning/losing teams. ENSURE THESE BOXES ARE FILLED IN SO THAT THE SITE DIRECTOR CAN RECORD SCORES CORRECTLY.
If nothing else, please ensure the score is properly noted on the sheets at the end of the match.
Normal 2 out of 3 matches are $40
Mandatory 3 set matches are $54
Per the Independent Contractor Agreement, matches worked between the 16th and the end of the month are to be paid by the 15th of the following month.
