This is definitely a very nice tournament. No really great teams, but solid teams from top to bottom in all divisions. Very competitive tournament!

Although this is a VERY nice program for the referees as they get a chance to ref competitive games, work a 3-man crew, get evaluated, etc., it disappointed me that they were running this clinic at probably their most popular spring event. Many of the refs were inexperienced, and although I understand that these refs are doing their best, there were a lot of missed calls, etc. In conclusion, this tournament is an excellent tournament with great competition, and it is a referee clinic, two very good things that should be happening. However, it disappointed me that the two were combined.


Those refs aren't "amatuers". Amatuer refs don't pay whatever this particular camp costs (I've seen ones in the past with a cost of several hundred dollars; and no pay for actually reffing either). These are refs that are looking to be certified for three-person mechanics so they can ref tournament games and also move up in levels.


I have to agree with Bucky Badger, the Just A Game Refs were horrible. I beleive one of the tournaments my team was in atleast 1 of the 3 refs were in training and being evaluated.

The referee's for the tournament were not beginners. Yes, they had a clinic to work a 3 man crew, but all the officials were all WIAA certified refs that were level 3 or higher, which are far more experienced refs that you would find at most tournaments of this kind. The championship games were officiated by many refs who work college games as well.

Results were:
10U-Wis Blizzard over Wis Academy
11U-Fox Valley Hurricanes over Wis Academy
12U- Madison Spartans over Randolph
13U-NESYB over Randolph
14U-Playground Warriors over Randolph
15U-Townline Sports over Randolph
16U-Randolph over ABC Knights
17U-Randolph over Wis Blaze
