How Games are Assigned
The SMHA Referees Division uses Arbiter Sports to assign officials for all games for the Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association and for Senior Hockey Leagues.
SMHA minor hockey games are generally assigned in the following manner:
For all levels of minor hockey, the Assignor(s) are required to (via email) request unavailable dates from each official prior to the 1st of each month. Officials will then log on to the Arbiter website and enter their unavailable days (blocks) for the time frame provided. Assignor(s) will then schedule the officials based on SHA level, skill and availability for the upcoming period.
Officials will receive an email that they have received new assignments and will log onto the Arbiter web site to view these assignments. There is no option to Accept or Decline games - by not marking yourself as unavailable for the date and time that you have received games, you are confirming that you are available, confirming these assignments
Once assignments are at this stage, they are the official's responsibility.
Please note that if you believe that you are ranked below where you think you should be, or if you would like to be evaluated, contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an evaluation.
If the proper procedure is followed and there is a discrepancy in your pay cheque, please contact email@example.com and we will get the problem resolved ASAP.
