OFFICIALS' NATIONAL MEET TRAVEL FUND

This programs provides expense reimbursement for those individuals who officiate at Summer Nationals, Summer Junior Nationals, Winter Nationals and Winter Junior Nationals

The total funding amount for the year (Bucket) will be determined annually by the officials committee

The total "bucket" of money will be shared equally between those who submit requests.  Each meet worked counts as one share.  For example, if you work two meets, you are entitled to two shares.

Requests must be submitted within 10 days after the conclusion of the meet.

Payments will be made once all requests are received after the conclusion of the winter championship meets.  In other words summer meets will be reimbursed, but not until December.

Reimbursement amounts are up to the "share" amount, not to exceed actual expenses.

Eligible Expenses include (but not limited to)

  • Hotel
  • Air Fare
  • Car Rental
  • Gas & Tolls
  • Meals
