Setting Travel Limits Travel limits restrict an official from showing as being available for games which are beyond the distance the referee is willing to travel. The program calculates the amount of time to reach a game based on travel at 50 mph. You can set different distances you are willing to travel for each day of the week and from where you will be leaving.
The distance from the referee’s departure site and the game site is automatically calculated by the program from the zipcodes of both sites. If you need to change any of your departure day zipcodes you can do so at any time and as soon as they are changed they effect future assignments.
This is the travel limits screen. To change a travel limit click on the edit pencil.
When one of the edit pencils is clicked you will see this screen. Enter the changed zip code or the changed mileage and click on the green save check to complete the change
Summary Effective Fall 2005 all USSF Assignors in North Carolina will be required to assign USSF games in NC through this site. NCSRA is encouraging all playing associations to put all of their games into this system. All USSF referees will be in this system and for those in the college referee association and those whose HS assignors use Arbiter, your schedules will show all of your games at once.
Tutorial Available from NCSRA In order to operate smoothly NCSRA needs all referees to become proficient in using Arbiter. We have put this tutorial on the NCSRA web page for download and review at your convenience. Assignors will also have an extensive tutorial available. As will league administrators, coaches, players, and parents.
Summary Through the statewide consistent use of the USSF North Carolina arbiter system NCSRA hopes to greatly increase communication amongst referees, assignors, and the referee administration. NCSRA’s ultimate goals are more and better referee assignments More and better referee development and promotion. Better Referee service to the Game
