Judge Certification info

Dear Black Belt:

We realize the core to a successful tournament is not only in how it is run, but who is helping it to get done. The judges are the most important part of making sure a tournament is run professionally, on time and with the highest quality. Many competitors and their families forget that judges volunteer their time and energy to help competitors. Sometimes judges are not perfect. We all make mistakes, but there is no excuse for a lack of understanding of rules, regulations and how a tournament is run.

At N.Y. Tournaments, we are putting together a core group of Center Referee's, Black Belt Side Judges and Score Keepers to make every one of our events run perfectly.

We are hosting regular meetings to help keep our judges on top of all the rules, regulations and changes.  For more information on how you can become an official or a scorekeeper just email us.

For anyone who is interested in becoming a part of the N.Y. Tournaments Judges Team, and coming to our quarterly meetings please email us below.


Here are some of the benefits:

- Judges meetings and FREE breakfasts.

- Official Judges shirt to wear at each event, side judges get our custom shirt to take home

- Judges certification classes.

- Top priority for judging in all N.Y. Tournaments events.

- Center Ref - credits and payments

- Side judges - tournament credits and payments.

- FREE lunch at all tournaments.

- and so much more.
