Like at US Quidditch Cup 9, USQ is requiring teams to send in the names of people who may help fill referee assignments. Teams are being asked to provide one lead assistant referee, two assistant referees, and one snitch referee. Other updates on team registration are also available.
Team Referee Crews
All teams will be required to fill out the referee crew form by Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 11:59pm. Teams are being asked to provide a crew of certified officials consisting of one lead assistant referee, two assistant referees, and one snitch referee. Please note that all members of a crew must be certified for the position they are put down for. They should be certified by the time the team submits the form. Teams may submit more than one referee crew.
Staff will make all efforts to keep the individuals in each crew together. However, crews may need to be separated for various reasons, such in the case of conflict of interest. We recommend that teams check the volunteer schedule closely when it is released the week of March 27 to double check team referee crew assignments.
January 27, 2017 Deadline
By this Friday, January 27, 2017 at 11:59pm, teams who qualified for US Quidditch Cup 10 at fall regional championships must complete the following requirements:
- Submit the event registration form.
- Request attendance to the event on the events calendar. Note: As with all official games, each team’s roster of up to 21 players must be submitted through the USQ website no later than 24 hours before the start of the event.
- Pay the non-refundable tournament registration fee, which is $450*. This can be done either by mailing a check or paying via PayPal.
To pay by check, it should be made out to US Quidditch, Inc. and mailed to PO Box 79304 Charlotte, NC 28271. The check must be postmarked by the team’s registration deadline. To pay via Paypal, use the form on this page.
*Please note that a $25 processing fee will be included if you choose to pay with PayPal.
Also, a grant program for team registration fees for West and Northwest teams will be available. Information on that grant program will be announced the week of January 30, 2017.
- Register for hotel accommodations through USQ’s travel partner, Traveling Teams, as required per the stay and play policy. Teams are required to book a minimum two night stay for all players for the event. The reservation request must be submitted by the team’s registration deadline. The confirmation email the team receives upon submitting the request should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the registration fee, if a team is marked as pending on the registration status spreadsheet then it means that USQ has received confirmation that the payment has been sent, but we have not yet received the fee yet. As teams who pay by check can mail the check in this Friday, provided it is postmarked on that date, we may not mark off teams as fully registered until the week of January 30 or February 6, depending on where the check is coming from and when it is received and processed.
All information about team registration requirements is available on the Team Registration page of the US Quidditch Cup 10 website.
