Program Structure and Contacts

The Commissioner of Officials is responsible for the interpretation and enforcement of the USAT Competitive Rules; sets the standard of behavior for officials, sets policy and creates procedures for rules enforcement and reporting at sanctioned events. 

The National Officials Program has 10 Regional Officials Coordinators (ROC), National Officials Coordinator (NOC) and one Technical Officials Coordinator (TOC) spread across the United States.  The ROC’s, NOC and TOC report directly to the Commissioner of Officials and are responsible to supervise, recruit, train, mentor, develop and assign Competitive Rules Officials (CRO) and National Technical Officials (NTO) to sanctioned events that request officials.  They work closely with the Commissioner to enforce program policies and standards, stay abreast of changes to the program and make recommendations for program improvement. They maintain an active roster of officials, race schedule, assignments and collection of post-race documents. They make sure all officials are compliant with their certifications.  The CROs in each region report directly to their respective ROC and NTOs report directly to the TOC.
