End of Season Update


Let me congratulate you on a successful season.  In 10 weeks, I only had 3 tough phone calls with a few coaches.  We had some film sent in that was looked at and Dan responded to the coaches in a timely manner. 


Point sheets have been sent out and are available at  They need to be filled out and sent back to me ASAP.  I will adjust them as the playoffs go. TASO requires the sheets to be finalized by December 31.  I will then put them on a spread sheet and send them in to be finalized.  If I don’t have your sheet, you will get no credit for the season.  If you decide later to turn in your sheet, you must provide TASO proof of everything you work or attended the previous year.  No proof, no points.


By December 31, you need to go into ARBITER and print you entire seasons schedule.  Arbiter requires me to do a mass delete of our account once the season is over.  I will do this around January 10, 2017.  It will be on hold for 90 days, I am unable to input the 2017 schedules.


Next seasons dues are due by January 1, 2017


TASO dues are due by February 1, 2017.  After that, they hit you with a big penalty for paying late.  


Thanks again for making my first season assigning a pleasure, hope I was fair to everyone.  That was my goal.

Mid Season Updates….


We are getting some film from coaches.  Visit HUDL to view these videos.  We are sharing specific game films with the crews working those games and Dan is doing a good job of extracting relevant training clips and sharing with the Chapter.
