Congratulations to our USA Touch Referees '22

January, 2022


TEMPE, Ariz – We hope you are all safe and enjoying the end of year holidays. We'd like to close the year by thanking all of our wonderful referees without whom 2021 nationals would not have been possible. We hope this is the catalyst for continual referee development across the USA. If you're not yet certified but would like to be, please access the pathway here.

After a tough year without Touch, we'd like to congratulate all referees who were newly certified or re-certified during the 2021 Nationals. If you were a previously certified referee (of any level) and refereed at 2021 nationals, you have re-certified at your original certification level.
