Concerning Lines People

For varsity matches, the rule is that no students can do lines. Those who can do lines are non-students who are over 18, or CBVO officials. Need to have two lines people or none. If both lines people don’t show up on time, then no lines people for that match. Don’t add them in on the second set.

R1/R2 Expectations

Now that you are in the swing of things I just wanted to wish you all a great season. In addition a few newer officials have asked me about their responsibilities on the court. For review, if you are listed to do both a JV and Varsity match it is listed on Arbiter as what your responsibility is during the VARSITY match. If you are R2 during the VARSITY match, you will be the R1 during the JV. This is the way it is identified because it is necessary to link JV and Varsity in the system so that 4 officials do not get assigned. Next, if you are assigned to work with your mentor and you are doing the JV match ONLY, I would like you to be the R2. I expect you to stay for a minimum of 2 sets of the Varsity match afterwards. I want you watching and asking questions! I put a lot of effort into assigning those matches by hand and I want you to take advantage of this opportunity to pick the brains of your mentors.
That’s it for now!

Assigning Fees

A number of officials are sending me checks. Remember, anything scheduled by me would have the 8% applicable scheduling fee. I schedule the earlier rounds of the state tourney. That is why I am surprised anyone has sent me their second payment. The matches that Marie schedules for the state tournament DO NOT have a fee attached. Marie is compensated directly by the CIAC.

For your benefit I am giving you the instructions on how to figure out your 8%. You can do it the old fashioned way of adding all your matches up or :

Go on Arbiter, go to REPORTS on the left, Hit SCHEDULE, then put the date range you worked, then go to EXPORT FORMAT and put in EXCEL WOKSHEET FORMAT (xls), then hit PRINT PREVIEW, if you look at the bottom right hand corner you will get the amount that you should have been paid. Multiply it by 8% and subtract the amount that you have already paid ( if you did). You will then have the balance owed to me.

I hope you all enjoy the final weeks of the season. There are some great matches coming up. If you are not scheduled it is an opportunity to see some very good volleyball.

I look forward to seeing you all at the banquet.

Thanks for all your assistance throughout the season. Heather
