All referees wishing to be considered for appointments must be available to work all games to be eligible. All referees that do not reside within an hour of KC will be in a dorm at this Regional event, 4 to a quad with individual sleeping rooms.
The Midwest Regional National Championship Series event will have game every day from June 21-26, 2024 in 2 venues in Overland Park, Kansas. June 20 & 27 are considered travel days. You must be able to attend all the dates to apply. Missouri's required 15 Referees and 3 Referee Assessor/Mentors will be housed in the hotel if from outside the Western District. The cost of hotel is $75 per night per person with double occupancy, and will be pre-paid by MYSA. 3 meals a day are included, breakfast and dinner at the Hotel and lunch at the fields. Except for no lunch on Monday June 26 or Wednesday, June 28.
Compensation - Each Referee should expect to be compensated directly by MYSA. For all referees $450.00 max for 5 days and for non-western district referees $500.00 maximum each. All to be paid after attending. Proportionate reduction if anyone doesn't stay the entire time.
Selected Referee Coaches (assessor/mentors) attending will be compensated directly by MRDP. Compensation will be based on days that assignments from Region 2 are worked. MRDP must have a current W9 on file before payment is made. Head of Delegation will be Shane Butler for the event.
Travel - MRDP will provide some additional limited travel support for those outstate mentors/assessors that carpool with at least 2-3 of the selected persons in a vehicle that leaves from outside the Western district.
Attire - MRDP will provide MRDP branded shirts (1 short sleeve and 1 long sleeve) to all selected Missouri registered referees and assessor/mentors that attend. Because of lead time for shirts, only the 15 + 3 are guaranteed shirts for attending.
This year because of field availability, approximately 28 games will start every two hours so the length of the day should be shorter, allowing for more instructional and rest time.
All applications must be submitted by May 1. The final selected list of Missouri nominated referees and assessor/mentors will be made after applications are closed on May 1, 2024.
