What are Locations?

Determining the location where you games will take place

Updated over a week ago

Locations can be edited by officiating organization administrators by navigating to Administrative Forms >> Add/Edit/Remove Locations.

"Locations" refer to the physical places where games or events are held. The terminology for Locations can vary, as officiating organizations have the flexibility to customize it based on their preferences. Depending on the organization's choice, Locations can be referred to as "Venues," "Fields," "Arenas," "Ice Rinks," "Schools," "Facilities," "Gyms," or "Grounds."

How to Name Locations

For effective management and clarity, officiating organization administrators should create a separate "Location" entry for each distinct playing surface. This practice ensures seamless scheduling and assignment of officials for various sports and events. If a particular venue has multiple playing surfaces, you must give each playing surface a unique name. Here are examples of different sports using the Locations naming structure:

Soccer Venues:

  • Soccer Complex - Field A

  • Soccer Complex - Field B

  • Soccer Complex - Field C

Basketball Courts:

  • Community Gym - Court 1

  • Community Gym - Court 2

Hockey Rinks:

  • Ice Arena - Rink 1

  • Ice Arena - Rink 2

Baseball Fields:

  • Local Park - Field 1

  • Local Park - Field 2

Accurate Address Details

Specifying an accurate address for each Location is vital as it enables the system to provide directions, mileage, and GPS mapping for officials and schedulers, enhancing functionality. The system uses geocoding to identify the location based on the address provided during Location creation. If the geocode places the pin in the wrong location on the map, schedulers have the option to drag and drop the pin to the correct location for precise mapping.

Managing Locations

Schedulers or officiating organization administrators can access and manage Locations by navigating to the appropriate administrative section. However, it's essential to note that if the option is not visible on the Administrative Forms page, then their officiating organization may not have granted them access to manage this information. In such cases, they should reach out to their organization's administrators to request the necessary permissions or ask them to make any changes or additions for them.


Locations play a crucial role in the officiating software, serving as the physical venues for games and events across different sports. By accurately creating and managing Locations, officiating organizations can streamline scheduling, improve communication with officials, and enhance overall efficiency. Ensuring accurate address details allows for seamless mapping and GPS navigation for officials and schedulers.
