When a club recieves permission to host a contest, it must enlist qualified officials for the event. Officials, including a meet director, must also be members of USA Roller Sports, and their qualifications are determined by commisions they hold.  The level of commision is determined by training, testing and experience of the judge, referee and/or tabulators.  Meet directors are certified by attending a meet directors certification program  sponsored and conducted by USA Roller Sports.
