The leagues we service require background checks for the officials working their games. The leagues also require coaches to have background checks. This is not negotiable.
The league requires that the Background Check be completed by the company hired to perform them for all officials for their league. The Background Check information is not transferable. It is the same way a Credit Report completed by Bank A cannot be sent to Finance Company B for purchasing an item.
It includes a criminal background search, a sex offender report, a global security watch list for terrorism, international narcotics traffickers and other security threats and a SSN trace for County criminal records.
Once you indicate that you want to referee for us, you will receive an email from RSI Credentialing with instructions to complete their secure online application.
The preferred way to complete the Background Check is by using a PC or Mac computer. Also, the preferred browser is Google Chrome. If you are having issues with Chrome, please clear your history and cache. Then try again. RSI does have a support hotline.
You are an independent contractor and are free to work games for whoever you choose. If you want to be a preferred contractor with USA Officials, you will maintain availability for USA Offiials to assign you the maximum number of games on game dates. You will honor your commitments and work the games to the highest level of professionalism, being on-time, physically fit, maintain highest knowledge of the rules and use good judgement.
ArbiterSports charges each Assigner per official.
You do not have to share your game schedule in Arbiter with us. It will certainly help if you want your schedule filled up with games that are in close proximity to another game you may already have assigned. It cuts down on you getting a set of games that may not work for you because it is too far from where you need to be later in the day.
If you need more than just the 10/20 mile radius. We have a form you can complete that will capture that information. You can also communicate work schedule.
