WFTDA provides a standardized Officiating History document for use for WFTDA Certification and postseason events. Other organizations may choose to use this document for officiating applications.
The new Officiating History Document is currently being evaluated for GDPR compliance. The previous version can be found here.
Due to the GDPR review, the form for the creation of a new Officiating History Document has been turned off.
The form will request the information needed to:
- create the new Officiating History Document
- import user profile data
- import all of the games listed in the user’s existing history document
- send the user an email with a link to the new document
For first time creation, simply leave the existing history document field blank and a new, blank document will be created for you.
The WFTDA Officiating History document is linked to a master WFTDA template so that users will automatically receive future template updates.
The expanded help document will change over time and form living documentation and a FAQ repository for the new WFTDA Officiating History document. There is a dedicated migration document to help users convert from an existing history document.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
