Thank you all for being here and making Saturday a great day.
It was fantastic.  We truly appreciate you being here and making this event such a success.

Our official's mission statement in HOA is IMPROVE!!!
No matter how good we become we can always IMPROVE!!!
Remember, we are all one team with the same purpose and goal.
Here are some observations from your head officials on Saturday.

  • Credentials
    1. Verify credentials every match. We observed many courts with uncredentialed adults on the bench.
    2. Remember a credential is either a laminated  card visibly worn or a wrist band visibly worn.
    3. Please don't be those referees, when teams say "We haven't been checked all day".
  • Schedules
    1. Please read twice.  Use buddy system to verify each other's schedules.
    2. Time management, please keep matches moving smoothly.
    3. If your match is running late and you might miss your next match, let head referees or Brad/Ric know.
  • Score sheets
    1. Please make sure that you have the correct score sheet, verify time/court before leaving the championship desk.
    2. If you pick up your score sheet, you should proceed directly to the court.
    3. The match format is printed on the schedules and is accurate.  Please review.
    BOYS have 2 pools. One is best of 3 and one is 2 sets only. Information is on the wall.
    4. Have scorer print all official's names on the score sheet.
    5. Please verify the results of your match. Circles around final points, make sure winner/loser is correct and recorded properly in the results area.
  • Uniforms
    1. Any doubt concerning the legality of the uniforms, must be reported to Championship (Especially the 18 Qualifiers)
    2. If you cannot get a head referee, use text to let Brad 417.380.8292 and Ric 573.230.8694 know.
  • Game Balls
    1. Make sure you have the right ball for your court.
    2. Please check ball pressure when you get to your court. Several balls were under 2 PSI
    3. Do not leave ball unattended. If you finish early, take it to Championship desk.
    4. After last match, bring game ball back to Championship
  • Step-In Line only for 11s. NO STEP-IN LINE FOR 12s!

HOA is providing limited parking on the South Dock (Broadway and 16th) with HOA parking passes.
Also a parking area under the South Dock may or may not be open.

Several important considerations:
Remote Hotels and Commuters will have first priority.
1. Do not harass the attendant if you don't have a pass.
2. Please make every effort to carpool as space is limited.
3. People in the hotels nearby can use cheaper auditorium parking if we do not have enough space.
4. Monday parking will be the same since trucks will not be coming until Tuesday.

1 .If you arrive early on Friday, stop by Championship desk and pick one up.

2. Email ha.mlk-refinfo@hoavb.org (use Parking Pass as subject) and request a pass if you are not planning on coming to the convention center of Friday. Email was incorrect (Sorry, Sorry again). Ric/Brad will email you a temporary pass, print it and use it to gain access to parking. Come to championship to get your actual colored pass.  Go back to vehicle and exchange passes and destroy the old one. Please allow sufficient time to make exchange and get to your court.
