NAWGJ Ohio will be joining an online assigning system for the 2017-18 season. It is the hope that this willl streamline things for all- making for less work and greater efficiency. 

ALL USA Gymnastics, YMCA, AAU, and any rec leagues will use the system. High School and Middle School WILL NOT use this system. They will continue to use Arbiter Sports.
