Scheduling & Online Calendar Availability

Since officials are scheduled in sets of 2-4 games it is important not to be too restrictive with your availability. Otherwise the system will not allow you to be scheduled or block you from sets that may be close to home.  See examples below.

Example:

  • You set your availability for 7:30 am - 10:30 am for Saturdays.
  • Your ranking allows you to officiate Peewee games and lower

Scenario 1: There are 4 rinks with 3 game sets starting at 7:20 am.
You will not show up in the list of available officials since the start time of the set is 10 minutes earlier than your availability settings.

Scenario 2: There are 4 rinks with 3 game sets starting at 7:30 am.
You will not show up in the list of available officials since the third game game in the set ends at 10:50 am.

Scenarios 3: There are 4 rinks with 2 game sets starting at 7:30 am and 2 of those sets include a Bantam game.
You will not show up in the list of available officials for 2 of the sets since it includes a Bantam game, which is outside your capabilities.
You will show up as a potential fit for 2 of the rinks. However, these rinks may not be close to home and better suited for another official.

As you can see from the above, if you do not setup large windows of availability it will be very unlikely for you to get scheduled. Keep in mind that when we are scheduling a set of games that fall outside your availability even by 10-15 minutes your name will not even show as a potential candidate for the set.
