 2019 Junior Olympics Referees Participant Registration
Date/Time:7/17/2021 - 7/25/2021
Organizer:USA Water Polo
General Event Details
General Event Description


The largest age group Championship in the world is right around the corner. This summer, USA Water Polo will be hosting the 50th anniversary of National Junior Olympics in Orange County, California, July 20 - 28, 2019.

This will truly be the largest Junior Olympics ever with 905 teams participating, so we are going to need an all hands on-deck approach in terms of referee participation. 

At this time, I would like to invite you to submit your availability to be a part of this event. 

Please understand that your availability does not guarantee assignments and final selections will be based on your availability restrictions, if any, and the recommendations and/or endorsements from the Zone Head Referees and the USA Water Polo National Referee Manager.

To be considered for selection, you MUST possess the required USA Water Polo Membership and have all of your Referee Certification Requirements up to date.  You can review those requirements and procedures at:

The Referee Selection process is open to those available for the entire event AND those with limited availability. There may be some priority given for those available for the entire event, however partial availability will not eliminate you from consideration. As mentioned above, this will be by far the largest JO's ever so please submit even if it's with partial availability.

If selected, please note that transportation costs to and from the event will be your responsibility. Housing may be provided for those that do not live in the immediate area of the competition (outside of 50 mile radius).

Please submit your availability by May 10, 2019 and we hope to have selections completed by May 31, 2019 or shorty thereafter.
