Accept/Decline procedures

1)     Accept all games by the “accept to date”

2)      Any matches not accepted by the "accept to date" may be reassigned.

3)      Before you decline a date, please ask yourself one of two questions:

  1. Is this a date I cannot work at all? – then YES “decline”
  2. Is this a date I can work but due to travel or other restrictions cannot make the venue assignment given to me? – then NO “do not decline”. Instead contact Bruce Bird to be moved to a different location.

Assigning Process

 

How to get paid as an official

 Most schools pay through ArbiterPay (sign up on Arbiter Sports through the payments tab).

Login to www.refpay.com to create your ArbiterPay account and link it to your Arbiter assigning account for schools that pay directly through the assigning system.

If a school does not use ArbierPay, they pay directly at the site with a check, cash or mail payment within two weeks. We recommend all officials sign a pay voucher at these sites and retain a copy for their records. Also keep a record of who they have been paid by, mileage reimbursement, etc.
