Coach portal for ref assignments
What I proposed is that you have a public portal where coaches or anyone could see if refs have been assigned to their game.
This alone would prevent very costly scenarios where game date/time/location does match up with our game scheduling software. It would give our coaches an opportunity to confirm that what our websites show matches with what ref assignor has manually entered or imported into your system.
Information required would simply be association, level, date/time, arena/pad, game number. That's it. We don't need to know who the refs are, just that our game information is exactly the same as our game scheduling website.
Again, this would eliminate a very costly scenario. When refs don't show up, our minimum cost is $300 per hour, as well as 34 extremely disappointed families who have also incurred expense coming to the game.
This functionality already exists and has for many years through the Public Schedule and Integrate Your Website options. You may contact our support team if you need details on how to operate those features.
