Applying as a TD:
SHG requires you to be member of League for at least 30 dates prior to
applying as a TD. This gives you time to get to know League and Game
Rules and other Staff and members to be sure it is a place you want to be
TD. Going from League to League applying to get a Bell may one day result in
SHG not giving you a bell or token to be Staff
New TD in Training:
Once SHG Bell Training is
successfully completed a trainer will be assigned by the TD Training
Coordinator. The TD Training Coordinator will change the new td's status from "in
training" to "active" and the training will begin. Once a new TD
is approved they MUST begin training within 14 days or they will be removed as
a TD. They can reapply when they feel their
schedules will permit being more active in completing training. Some new TDs
have more experience or may have been TDs in past who may only need a
little training and one tour completed with TD Trainer while others may
be brand new to TDing and need more training and more tours with TD
TD with experience :
TD having experience will be setup as TD immediately and can
actively help with tourneys per TD Policy. Training and help will be available
1) TD's are required to host 2 tourneys per week. If unable
to host required tourneys per week TD MUST email HA weekly
