2018 Midwest BrewHaHa Officials

9th Annual Midwest BrewHaHa
June 1 – June 3, 2018
Milwaukee, WI

The Brewcity Bruisers will be hosting the 9th annual Midwest BrewHaHa from June 1st through June 3rd at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in downtown Milwaukee, WI. This tournament will entail two tracks and over 25 teams. This WFTDA Recognized Tournament will include WFTDA sanctioned games, MRDA sanctioned games, WFTDA regulation games and Junior Roller Derby. The tournament is set to run from Friday morning through Sunday night.

We are currently seeking applications for the positions of Tournament Head Referee (THR) and Tournament Head Non-Skating Official (THNSO). Applicants are encouraged to apply as co-THNSOs or co-THRs. These individuals will be responsible for selecting referee and NSO tournament participants from the applications received, developing officiating line-ups for all games, coordinating with the Brewcity Bruisers Officials Liaison regarding tournament logistics, and overseeing the BrewHaHa officials and games throughout the tournament. The THR and THNSO should plan on arriving in Milwaukee on Thursday, May 31st. Tournament registration, captains meeting and officials meeting will take place on Thursday evening/night. The tournament will run through Sunday night so applicants should plan on leaving Milwaukee on Monday June 4th.

The Midwest BrewHaHa committee has secured funds to offer Tournament Head Officials a travel stipend of $100 each. Due to the size of the tournament, in the past there have been up to three Tournament Head Referees and up to three Tournament Head Non-Skating Officials. These structures have taken a number of different forms, such as three THRs or one THR and two assistant-THRs or two THNSOs and an apprentice THNSO. Taking this into consideration, the $100 stipend travel stipend is for up to six Tournament Head Officials. If there are more than six Tournament Head Officials, the allotted $600 will be split up evenly among the THOs.

Individuals that are interested should send a letter of interest and an officiating games history to brewhaha@brewcitybruisers.com. The deadline for application is 11/30/17.

The letter of interest should include the following information:

  • Derby Name
  • Legal Name
  • Home league (if applicable)
  • WFTDA Certification level
  • A brief explanation of why you are interested in this position
  • A brief explanation of why you are a good candidate for this position
  • If you plan on co-THR/co-THNSOing with another official, please indicate that in your letter.

  • WFTDA Sanctioned game experience (dates, teams, positions worked)
