Assessing Out Of State:
USSF policies and procedures specifically prohibit assessors from traveling to another state to conduct assessments without the specific approval of the assessor's home state SDA and the SDA in the state where the assessment will occur. Furthermore, proper protocol dictates that an assessor traveling out of state first get permission from his or her own SDA and then from the SDA of the state the assessor is visiting. Any assessment given by an assessor without these permissions could be considered to be invalid. Therefore, any assessor from Connecticut traveling out of state to conduct an assessment must first contact the Connecticut SDA who will assist, if needed, in contacting the SDA in the state to be visited. Further, any assessor invited to conduct assessments at any game held in Connecticut must get permission from the Connecticut SDA before conducting any assessment in Connecticut. Anyone inviting the assessor (or the assessor himself or herself) should contact the SDA at the State Referee Office (860-826-9000) or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
