Why a Primary Town?

We are working hard at preventing FALSE accounts from being created. By having the town Referee Assignor verify accounts, we elminate 90% of the fake Referee Accounts.

Suggestions include Full Name or initial and Last Name (e.g. John Doe or jdoe). We will check for a duplicate username and inform you before you complete this application. The account username is case sensitive. You will need to remember if you used mixed upper and lower case once your account is approved and created.
Provide a password for the new account in both fields. Passwords are case sensitive. Please remember if you used mixed upper and lower case once your account is approved and created.
Each account requires a UNIQUE email address. Therefore, you can not use a parental email account for multiple referee's. Each referee requires a unique email account.
Pro Tip: Please do not use corporate email addresses, as they are frequently configured to block email from organizations like BAYS. Additionally,,, and email address have intermittent issues with non-delivery of BAYS email and should NOT be used if at all possible.
