Spring 2020 Season Canceled

May 22, 2020

OHYSA has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the Spring Season. After carefully reviewing the requirements laid out by the Reopen Texas Strike Force checklist to continue our season, we do not believe that the stringent guidelines are something we can effectively meet as a volunteer organization. These include daily screening of all participants - including our umpire crews.

Additional changes regarding umpire gear would also need to be adopted. To that end, it is likely that the purchase of your own umpiring gear will be a requirement for being scheduled for 2 man crews going forward.

We hope everyone remains safe, and know that we are diligently working on all necessary safety measures as we move through the summer and plan for our Fall Season.

Entering Availability

  • Click Member menu in the menu bar at the top of this page
  • Select Referee from the drop-down menu
  • Choose YOUR name from the options available 
  • Click on Availability Preference

A new screen opens that defaults to the current season. Click on the link to add your availability.

You can enter your availability, or lack of availability, for the entire season on this page. 

When we schedule, the system shows us all umpires who have listed themselves as AVAILABLE during a game slot.  Because of this it very important that you are specific as possible when entering your availability.

By using the various combinations of fields you can be as specific or as general as necessary. For example, I know that for the entire season I have a 6:30 night class on Mondays, so I mark myself as unavailable on Mondays during that time.  But otherwise I am available all season any time, so I enter that as well.

Each time I want to specify availability or unavailability I click on the link to display the Availability Form, enter my parameters and click the Save button. At the end, my availability appears at the bottom of the screen.

Confirming/Declining Assignments

Games are assigned by Tuesdays for the following Monday – Sunday. Emails will be sent with game assignments.

  • Click Member menu in the menu bar at the top of this page
  • Select Referee from the drop-down menu
  • Choose YOUR name from the options available 
  • Click on Availability Form

For each game assigned, check the box indicating that you are Unavailable (decline) or Available (accept). Use the Previous Week (go back) or Next Week (advance) links in blue to navigate as assignments may be split between weeks.

We expect that you show up for games that you are assigned unless you decline them with sufficient advance notice for us to assign a replacement. Repeated no-shows will result in no more assignments.
