Games Tournament Oversight (GTO) Program
GTO Training and Application Information
A Games Tournament Oversight Officer (GTO) provides oversight at tournaments and multi-game weekends to ensure a fair and well-managed competitive event. The main duties of the GTO are to:
- oversee competition and tournament policies
- support officiating personnel and the tournament host
- manage sanctioning and score reporting
- act as a Skater advocate
- enforce grievance policies
The GTO is a required position for WFTDA-sanctioned tournaments.
GTOs can be skaters, officials or other volunteers. Their role in the event is not as an official, but as high-level oversight. The GTO works with the tournament host, head officials and teams to ensure that all tournament and sanctioning policies are followed. A good GTO is organized, experienced in tournament play and policies, and comfortable with conflict and problem resolution.
