Can the Referee Assignment Program collect referee reports online?
Yes. Complete referee reports can be completed online. A portion of the game report including team names and scores is available to the general audience, while more sensitive comments are limited to those to whome you provide password clearance.
If I want to set up our league, how do I supply our game information?
Game information can be supplied in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The necessary columns of information are identified in the first line of the table below. The second line shows a sample of game information. These fields of data must be included.
If you have your game schedule in a different format, we may still be able to make it work.

What should the referee and linespersons files look like?
The information on your league's referees and linespersons should be contained in separate Excel spreadsheet files. A typical file can look like the information below. If you have your information in a different format, we may still be able to make it work.

What happens if I need to make multiple changes to the game schedule in the middle of the season?
This may happen unexpectedly if a particular field is removed from service or a team is lost unexpectedly. The file on our web server will need to be modified to include the new information and the web server will need to be unavailable for game assignments until the file is changed and reloaded on our servers.
The good news is that by using files that can be opened in a spreadsheet program, wholesale changes can be made very quickly, limiting the time your site is out of service to just a few minutes. We can perform simple changes for you under some circumstances, or we can grant you access to our server for you to download and upload files as needed. Remember that individual games can be edited via our Administrator Level Game Schedule Editor page.
We are a big league and have dozens of teams in all age groups in both male and female divisions. Will your program work for us?
The limiting factor at this time is likely to be the power of the end-user's browser to display the games in a timely fashion. Most reasonably modern computers with Internet Explorer can handle over 3000 games.
Why doesn't the Game Assignor Program work with Netscape browsers?
This project started as a test of Internet Explorer's Data Binding capabilities. These functions are not available in Netscape browsers. Future plans call for a web-based front end that will be capatible with all modern browsers.
