Details about when the software requires officials to re-accept game assignments after changes are made to a game.

Updated over a week ago


In our software, if a scheduler within an officiating organization makes changes to essential game information, it is mandatory for officials who have already seen and accepted the game assignment to reaccept the updated details. This policy applies to both past and future games and serves several important purposes. Reaccepting game assignments ensures that the officiating organization receives confirmation that officials are aware of the changes. It also provides officials with the opportunity to reassess their availability, willingness, and decisions based on the modified game information. This article provides a comprehensive overview of our reacceptance policy, explaining the reasons behind it and the various scenarios in which reacceptance is required.

Why Reaccepting Game Assignments is Necessary:

  1. Confirmation of Updated Information: Reaccepting game assignments after changes to essential game information guarantees that officials are informed about the modifications. It ensures effective communication between the officiating organization and officials, providing a clear understanding of the revised details.

  2. Opportunity for Reevaluation: When game information is altered, officials may want to reevaluate their decision to accept the game. The changes might impact their availability, preferences, or willingness to work the game. By requiring reacceptance, officials have the chance to reassess their commitment based on the new information.

  3. Consideration of Pay and Game Type: Officials often make acceptance decisions based on pay rates and game types. If these elements are modified, reacceptance allows officials to reconsider their willingness to work the game based on the updated pay or game type. This ensures fairness and transparency in the assignment process.

  4. Post-Game Procedures and Pay: Changes made after a game is played can affect post-game procedures and pay. Reacceptance helps officials stay informed about any adjustments, ensuring they have accurate expectations regarding post-game responsibilities and compensation.

Instances Requiring Reacceptance:

Officials are required to reaccept game assignments whenever the following essential game information is modified:

  1. Game Date: If the scheduled date of a game is changed, officials must reaccept the assignment. This ensures they are aware of the updated date and can make necessary arrangements.

  2. Game Time: Any changes to the scheduled game time mandate reacceptance from officials. It allows them to adjust their schedules accordingly and confirm their availability for the new game time.

  3. Game Length: Modifications to the expected duration of a game require officials to reaccept the assignment. This ensures they can plan their commitments accordingly and allocate the appropriate amount of time for the game.

  4. Game Location: If the game venue or location is altered, officials must reaccept the assignment. It allows them to be aware of the updated venue details and make any necessary travel arrangements.

  5. League: Changes to the league associated with a game require officials to reaccept the assignment. This ensures they are aligned with the updated league information and can adjust their preparation accordingly.

  6. Game Code: Modifications to the game code mandate reacceptance from officials. This allows them to verify the updated game identification and avoid any confusion during game assignments.

  7. Official's Position: If the duties and responsibilities of an official's position are modified, reacceptance is required. This ensures officials understand the revised role and can confirm their willingness to perform the updated responsibilities.


The reacceptance of game assignments in our software plays a crucial role in maintaining effective communication, decision consistency, and fairness within officiating organizations. By requiring officials to reaccept when essential game information is changed, we ensure that they are aware of the modifications and have the opportunity to reevaluate their availability, preferences, and decisions accordingly. This policy also promotes transparency in pay rates, game types, and post-game procedures. We are committed to providing a reliable and efficient assignment process that benefits both officials and officiating organizations, and reaccepting game assignments is an integral part of that commitment.
