12Arbiter Sports Fourth year for TBOA Pictures required by Sunday night, 10/5/2014Closed dates must be kept currentCheck your regularly and often during the season, everyday!Accept regular season assignments within 3 daysYou will receive a reminder 3 days outAccept all Tournament and Post Season Assignments within 24 hours.No Cancellation Fees – Loss of Future Assignments
13Arbiter Points of Emphasis Keeping Mark-offs (Blocks) current in Arbiter was the #1 issue inOfficials place blocks in Arbiter for specific dates. Then, when their game is rescheduled to a date that they had blocked, they send an saying that date was really open.
14Arbiter Sports continued… Closed dates must be kept current and blocked in ArbiterDeclines: Games 404 GamesTurnbacks: Games 201 GamesTotal: Games 605 GamesCancellation Fees have been eliminated. New policy will involvedloss of future assignments.
15Arbiter – Reasons for Declining Assignments Work conflict. Not going to be able to get out for 3:30 start.I have some family travel plansI have to work my regular job from 9 to 5 on SaturdayWill be out of town from Sat. morn until Sunday at noon....In re-hab that weekI can’t get off work until 5:30Have a college baseball game at 1:00Scheduling conflictI can't call a ball game until at least 4:30 pm.I am sorry I thought I had blocked out my scheduleWorkingI cannot leave school until 4:00PM. I am available but not until 4:30PM at the earliest

17Discussion Points Dress Code: Business Casual Confirm all Assignments with the Referee – no excuse for a no-show! R, it’s up to you to enforce.Dress Code: Business CasualArrive 30 hour prior to tipOn floor at 15 minutesHigh School Mechanics A Requirement (that alone will not get you a State Championship, but it will keep you out of one!)
18Discussion PointsAt end of half, crew meets at center circle to make sure arrow is correct, score is correct and all books in agreement.No comment and thank you is the extent of your conversations.
19What Coach’s told me last year: Official called a coach “boy” and told him to sit downOfficial told scorekeeper they were not going to call anything against the other teamOfficial told coach he got “no call” absolutely correct and to send them film to RSO. (He did and not only did we miss it, we should have ruled the foul flagrant)Why do we say anything that can be misinterpreted?
20NFHS TestingDon’t wait until the last minute. Take it on Monday or Tuesday so you have time to deal with issues.Make absolutely sure your address in NFHS matches youe address on the NCHSAA site exactly!Must make 75 or higher to work NCHSAA games. (Lost 3 officials for the season last year)Must be a Class I or II Official to work Post- Season State Tournament (Lost 7 officials for the play-offs)
21Disqualifications and Ejections Ejections – Must communicate to the coach and let him know whether it is a DQ or ejection. Don’t leave the gym without everyone knowing.Calling official must submit the report within 24 hours, but don’t delay. Do it that night!Report also required for DQ’s, etc so the players will have to go through the STAR program.Coach can be DQ’d (2nd technical for being out of box) or ejected (disrespectfully addressing official). Get this right! Both require reports.Fighting adds 2 games to the suspension.Do not call a second T on the coach during same dead ball interval unless he storms the court. Please let your partner handle this.
