Tryout Judge/Clinician Request General Information and Rates

General Information & Rates

Administrative Fee:In order to help offset the costs incurred by the United Spirit Association for scheduling and coordinating tryout judges, a $65 administrative fee will be charged to all schools/groups requesting tryout judges. If the school/group does attend a 2019 USA Summer Camp, the $65 fee will be credited toward the total camp costs. This money will automatically be credited to the school/group’s account once the camp registration paperwork and deposit are received in the USA office. If you are a 2018 USA camp attendee, your administrative fee is waived for your the 2019 Judges’ Try-Out Request.
