Referee Missing Payment

Welcome Referees!

BASL Assignor phone line: 904-701-4489

BASL only uses certified State or National referees via the Florida State Referee Association.  BASL continues to support the referee system by being the main sanctioned league in our district that do "assessable" adult level games.

One of the requirements Florida State Referees follow are background checks and concussion training certification on an annual basis.  Currently this is done via GotSoccer and the exchange of referee data between the State Referee Association and that software.

BASL's direct link to have the GotSoccer's youth system recognize "FYSA" as your primary referee assignor. 

https://www.gotsport.com/asp/officials/login.asp?RAID=22871

Filling out the form using the above link and designating us as one of your authorized assignors, allow us access to contact you using your State Referee Association identification you have provided. (USSF / BASL)  It also tells us the validity of your annual background check.

DO NOT CONTACT US OR ANY OF OUR ASSIGNORS ASKING WHY YOU ARE NOT BEING ASSIGNED GAMES UNLESS YOU HAVE DONE THE ABOVE!

After you have identified yourself to the league and our assignors, you will need to fill-out and submit a W9 form for our accounting, unless you are donating your referee services to us.  BASL follows best practice accounting procedures for referee payments and no payments will be made until our accounting department has a properly filled W9...including signature.  The form can be found for download on the left of the screen.

BASL uses certified assignors: Daniel Pillipow and Perry Kale.

All our assignors above are Grade 8 Assignors within the U.S. Soccer Federation and can be contacted via email baslassignor@gmail.com


Now that the above main intial steps have been done, BASL makes game assignments using their integrated league Referee Assigning system.  This is typically a two step process.

1. Our assignors work off a master schedule and do up a rough draft of assingments for the matches on the schedule.  Typically the referees will be notified via Text Message to confirm that they can do the games .  Our assignors expect a response within 30 minutes.  If the referee confirms their availability via the txt message, then they will be Listed on the pre-Game report.  

2. As soon as the referee is listed, an automated email is sent to the referee of their specific game assignment.  The referee should then confirm their assignment by logging into our system using the BASL Referee Login.  Please note that if a referee declines the assignment at this stage we will be calling you up to document the reasoning of the "turn-back".

The emails the system will send you will contain the instruction of how to log-in, but below is the link in-case you need it:

Schedules

 You can take a look at all schedules, Standing and team pages on the links on the left side of the page.

Please remember that we have overlapping seasons.  That means while one division is playing in the fall division another one may be in the winter division etc.

BASL Game Check In Process

FM’s are in attendance when refs check-in each team.  Center calls the name while an AR checks the picture (Currently 11 v 11 only)

Players must have date of birth and a proper face portrait. BASL Sticks by NO PASS NO PLAY in accordance with the rules of FSSA. (11 v 11 only)
 
If a name is not on the roster then this is an issue the field marshal handles and investigates as to why there is no name on the rosters. The FM only has the authority to approve the player to play.
 
Referees are in charge on the field. Referees may not CANCEL any game due to weather.
 
Field Marshals are in charge of off-field issues and rosters etc.
 
The standard procedure for check in is to have teams line up on the side line. One ref calls out names and matches player numbers on roster, one ref checks the player galleries, one ref checks for shin guards, jewelry, metal sharp studs, etc.
 
 
 
 
Referee Notes

If ID numbers on Rosters are not appearing for a particular player, allow the player to play and bring it up as an issue for the Field Marshal resolve with our software systems support.

Please note no passes are needed for 7 v 7

In BASL’s small sided divisions that plays a regular schedule organized by the league then they have the same rights and privileges as any other team regardless of size.  You should be using only a single referee for these games and the referees should wear their badges and all usual insurances apply.  This includes outdoor 7v7 and indoor 6v6. This is per our US Soccer Federation Association.

For 11 v 11 Games are NOT to be shortened for any reason unless the game starts later than 15 minutes.  (if a game starts 25 minutes late then halves can be shortened by 5 minutes each ONLY after approval has come from the Operations Manager or a BASL Board Member). Failure to follow this procedure exactly will result in no pay for any game that was shortedned without approval.

 Referee FYI’s

  • Arrive 30 minutes before the start of the game. This is to ensure that games are started at scheduled time.
  • First time referees must provide the field marshal with their mailing address and send a W9 to the league.
  • Please remind the teams to move the goals after last games. The field marshal will also ask. Only applies to fields where goals do not  remain in place
  • The field marshal is BASL’s Representative. Work together with them to accomplish tasks.
  • When confronted with a disappointed player, issue any appropriate cards and go on about your business. Avoid confrontations because they only cause chaos and more paperwork. The league will review information received by the field marshal to decide whether further disciplinary actions should apply.
  • We need to cut back on foul language. Please caution players using foul language and warn them that it will not be tolerated.
  • Fill out the game report given to you by the field marshal. If there is no field marshal on site then you must draft one on your own. Report the field marshal absence along with the results of the games to info@basl.com

When filling out Game Reports

Player In/Outs need to be clearly marked.

A Referee should never Write-In a player onto a roster.  Any Write-Ins are to be done by the Field Marshal only.  They are the only ones who can check with the Registrar and on-line to confirm the story of the player payment.

All players need to have a number associated with their name.

All writing should be legible. This information must be logged on to the website afterwards. Make it understandable or it makes for a long night of trying to understand it.

When writing cards players name, number, team, and type of misconduct must be listed. For more serious situations, ask the field marshal for paper to write any additional statements.

Please include your phone number on the game report. If we cannot understand what you write, we want to be able to call you to find out. If you don’t want us to call you, then please try fully filling out your report in a legible manor. This information is to help our league run more efficiently.

It is the field marshals job to relay the information provided on the game reports to the league. It becomes a very complex task when the game reports are not filled out completely and legibly.

 
Referee Pay Policy
2017 Rate Policy (New for 2017):
 
BASL has now moved from doing weekly check runs and mailing those checks to a more automated check run process utilizing "Digital Check" processing.  This is different, by being flexible in many aspects.  The first thing is that your correct Email Address is important for us to have in our accounting file, if you want to get paid without issue.
1. BASL will continue to do check runs every week typically on Mondays.  This will include the week's games 2 weeks prior (not the single week prior!).  We maintain 1 week buffer between each check run as we adjust and confirm the weeks on-line Field Marshal reports.
2. The referee "check stub" gets emailed out to the referees who are part of the check-run from our Vendor/Accounts Payable staff (usually Irene)
3. Digital checks are created in our accounting system and integrated to our processor Checkbook.io  The referee receives an email containing the Digital Check from "BASL Soccer" "support@checkbook.io" with complete instructions on how to automatically deposit it to your Bank, or to print out.
 
Make SURE @checkbook.io emails are finding its way to your APPROVED email box and not sitting in your SPAM box.  
 
If you choose to link the deposit directly to your Bank, subsequent payments from BASL will automatically transact and process deposits directly to your bank without further intervention.  Please note choosing the printout option of the Digital Check contains evrything required to do mobile banking of both front and back of the BASL check.  If you choose to print and take the printed check to a bank Teller, they may be new to Digital Checks, so let support@checkbook.io know if you received difficulty.
 
The next improvement we will be working on is the ability to have the Game record Check-stub detail automatically part of the digital check detail, rather than through a separate email from Irene.   We'll get there.
 
Here are 2 typical questions we receive:

Do recipients need to sign up to deposit a Digital Check?  No, recipients don't need to sign up for a Checkbook account to receive a Digital Check. First-time recipients have to verify their bank to deposit the Digital Check; all future transfers will be deposited automatically.

 

How Do I Verify My Bank?  There are two ways you can verify your bank to set up an account. You need to verify your bank to send, receive or request money:

Instant Verification:

You can verify your bank instantly if you have an account with one of the partnered banks. You will be able to see a list of these banks through a drop down menu. Select your bank, enter your online banking Username and Password, our system will verify your bank instantly and securely. Once your bank has been verified, you are all set to send and receive checks!

Manual Verification Using Micro-Deposits:

If you are not comfortable entering your online banking Username and Password, or if your bank is not listed as one of our partners - select "My bank is not on this list" from the drop-down menu. 

After manually entering the account and routing number, Checkbook will send you an email about manual verification and deposit 3 transactions into your bank in 1 business day. These amounts are all under $1 consisting of 2 debits and 1 credit. Simply take note of these amounts and enter them in the email. Your verification will be complete. 

How long does it take to receive funds? Standard processing takes 3-4 business days after the receiver has verified their bank.
