DVG Policy for securing Judges
AWDF organizations that wish to obtain a DVG judge for a trial, all applications and requests must be sent to the LV/DVG America Chief of judges, Lisa Little. By DVG/Germany rules, no judge can be
assigned or accept an assignment to a trial that the application has not gone through the Landesverband chief of judges, whether that's here or in Germany.
Judges not recognized internationally or by other AWDF member clubs
Please keep in mind titles attained under judges that are not recognized outside the United States may hinder teams wishing to attain new titles, compete nationally and possibly internationally under the AWDF umbrella.
