SCHEDULING Scheduling is handled through the on-line scheduling program at www.thearbiter.net. Log on per instructions from Mike Truax to provide your availability information and view your assignments. If any of your contact information (email address or phone numbers) changes, notify Mike immediately. In addition, check your email regularly! How Do I Turn Back Games? Call Mike Truax at least 72 hours before the match to turn back assignments you cannot do - i.e. Saturday matches should be turned back by Tuesday evening. What If I Want Additional Games? Turned back games and rescheduled matches are often available via the scheduling web site, www.thearbiter.net. What if I do a game for which I was not scheduled? It may happen that you are at a field as a fan or were working on an adjacent field and you discover that a game has no referee. If you step in to do that game in full uniform, fine. If the game is not a cash game, in order to get paid for that game, call Mike Truax that same day. It may also happen that someone other than the WMSOA assignor (a coach, league official, for example) calls you to referee a game. If you referee any game not assigned to you by WMSOA it is your responsibility to get payment from the person who called you. WMSOA will not guarantee payment for that game. What to do for inclement weather? Check for an email in your inbox before going to the field. You may also contact the on-line referee handbook for cancellation information for each league. Find the handbook and field directory at our web site, www.wmsoa.net. The handbook and field directory for each season is always attached to an email sent to you before the beginning of each season. Print out both documents and refer to them for relevant information. What If One or Both Teams Do Not Show or one team forfeits for lack of sufficient players? There is no match. Do not officiate scrimmages when one team forfeits for lack of sufficient players. Call or email (mtruax@myactv.net) Mike Truax that same day to report the forfeit.
