Game AssignmentAvailabilityIt is critical that availability be updated regularly.Scheduling will occur in 1 month intervals.Availability for all officials will be required to be up to date as of the 20th day of the month for the next month. NOTE: CZRC requires availability for the next month by the 10th of the current month!The objective will be to have the schedule for the first two weeks of the next month out for confirmation in order to have accepted ice times prior to the start of the next month. Scheduling of the remainder of the month is to be completed as soon as possible thereafter.

Assignment AcceptanceAssignments must be checked at least once daily.Assignments, which have been made available for 24hrs without acceptance, will be subject to reassignment.Assignments are made based on availability, as set by each official. By setting availability, each official accepts the responsibility for fulfilling the obligation of assignments made to that availability. If failure to acknowledge assignments is identified as an issue, it will affect the number of games offered to the affected officials.

Game Assignment - ContinuedTurnbacksAccepted games unable to be worked must be turned back to the referee coordinator A.S.A.P.The official is responsible to ensure that confirmation is received from the coordinator when games are turned back or disciplinary action may follow.Leaving a voice message does not constitute reporting a turnback to the coordinator.

Turnback Penalty Schedule:

24Hrs ($0)3Days ($2)After Day 4 ($5)Within 48Hrs ($7 + Discipline)Assignments turned back within the first 24hrs - no turnback fee assessed.Up to 3 days after assignments are distributed - $2.00 fee per turnbackAfter the 4-day grace period - $5.00 fee per turnback.Within 48 hours of game time - fee of $7.00 along with the potential of further disciplinary action (a fine equal to the game fee!).

Trading games is not permitted. Once accepted, each official is expected to fulfill the assignment accepted.If the official having the game assigned to him originally does not obtain confirmation of turnback from the coordinator, that official is still responsible to work the game. GameGame Assignment - ContinuedArrival at Games

30 Mins (on time!)20 Mins LATE! (-$5)No Show (-$10)Call Coordinator for replacement!!

Arrive at the arena 30 minutes prior to game time. (the time you walk in the dressing room!)Less than 20 minutes prior to game time - $5 fine.No-shows - $10 fine (not paid for game)Disciplinary action will be taken for a pattern of being late or not showing up.

Officials on-site must call Coordinator at 20 minute mark if ANY official not presentFailure to call coordinator for late and no-show officials will result in penalties to officials in attendance.Performance-based Game AssignmentGameGame Assignment - ContinuedPerformance-based SchedulingGame assignor tracks all game assignment issues:Declines (games assigned based on availability but rejected)Pullbacks (games not accepted in a timely manner)Lates (will have teams checking officials present!)Absences (no-shows)Counters are used to prioritize the officials availability for following ice slots.To get the maximum possible games, avoid lates, absences, declines, and pullbacks!

The assessing of penalties of any form are a last resort.Want to encourage the performance and attendance normally associated with job duties.

Tournaments, Exhibitions, Esso Minor Hockey Week, and Playoff GamesAssignment to games other than Seeding Round and Regular Season games will be done with consideration given to officials who have been reliable, consistent, and professional in their duties.Seeding Round and Regular Season games will be scheduled in as even and fair a manner as game and official availabilities facilitate.Program OperationSite LoginAssignor Screens (Availability, Assignment)Referee Control ScreensAccount SettingsSetting AvailabilitySetting Rink PreferencesAssignment Review and ConfirmationPayroll ReportsNotification - emailNotification - email vs textSpecify the method of notification preferred.If you would like to have this as your preferred notification method, please identify both your 10 digit cell number and your phone company.notification windows - response expectationsWant refs to check emails at least twice daily if possible.
