State Judging

Make sure that you have been registered at the state level by the Officials Director

Thank you for volunteering to judge at the state level. You truly make the experience for the NorCalomers that they will never forget.

Before judging at the state level you need to make sure that you have been registered at the state level by the Officials Director. This registration is not automatic so be sure that the Officials Director or Judge Coordinator knows you can’t wait to judge at the state level. * All teams attending the State Tournament will have their trained Judge advance with them to the state level.

Again on behalf of all the NorCalomers, Coaches, State Board of Directors and the State Director thank you for all that you do for the future creative minds.
