Interested in becoming a WATL Certified judge too? The program is open to the public! You do not have to be employed at a venue to participate and receive the certification. In order to apply and participate in the WATL Judge Certification program, click on the button below. Our team will send you an invoice for $85 USD; upon payment, we’ll then send you a link to complete the Judge Certification Quiz.

Upon successful completion of the quiz, you’ll be sent a certificate with your name and date of completion, signifying that you are a WATL Certified Judge. With this certification, you will be able to run and manage sanctioned events as an official who clearly understands the rule sets and expectations of WATL to the highest standard. If you’re designated as the official for your leagues, you will have the ability to adjudicate calls for the sanctioned event you are running.
