For scheduling Field Monitors, we use a scheduling page that is based on the region’s Referee Scheduling system. Therefore, some aspects of the field monitor scheduling process are similar to the referee system. In the meantime, the instructions below will help you navigate the system and signup for games.
Once you are logged into the inLeague System, select the FIELD MONITORS option under the Referee Heading as in the figure below.
Next you will see the Referee Assignment Requests screen (but in our case for Field Monitors). The list of Field Monitor shifts is listed in the table labeled “AYSO Area 1-P Available Field Monitor Assignments” and will default to the upcoming weekend. If you wish to schedule yourself for a different weekend, select the date from the drop down box and click the “Change Date View” button. Or navigate week by week using the Next Week >> or << Previous Week links.
For the Field Monitor shifts, you will be signing up for the slots labeled AR or Center. Depending on the field, there will be either 2 or 3 Field Monitor slots available per shift. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ALL SHIFTS ARE 1 HOUR AND 45 MINUTES LONG. The screen shows the start and end time of each shift. As you know the Field Monitor shifts overlap. For example, the 12:45 shift on LAC - East ends at 2:30pm, even though another shifts starts at the same field at 2:15pm.
For each game assignment on the schedule, you will see one of the following:
a. The word “Open” inside an assignment box. This means that the assignment is open and you may request it by clicking on the radio button.
b. An assignment column with a yellow background and person’s name followed by the word “Confirmed” in parentheses. This means that the assignment is filled and you may not request it .
c. An assignment box with the word “Unavailable”. This means that the assignment is not available because someone has already requested that assignment or it is simply not a relevant slot for the field monitor program. You will not see the name of the person in a confirmed assignment until the scheduling administrator confirms the assignment.
Sign up for a Field Monitor Shift by clicking on the radio buttons for each assignment you want and click the “Submit Assignment Requests” button. Your requests will show up as “Pending Confirmation”, until the scheduling administrator confirms them, usually the same day during the week prior to the scheduled game. YOU MAY ASSUME THAT YOUR REQUESTS WILL BE CONFIRMED. It is just a function of the referee scheduling system that requires this extra step. The following screenshot shows these assignments in the first AR column. The “Unavailable” slot is one that has been requested by someone else but not confirmed. The “Jeff Wolfe (pending confirmation)” slot is what you will see (with your name) after putting in your request. The “Jeff Wolfe (Confirmed)” slot is what you will see after the administrator confirms your assignment.
After you have completed your assignments, be sure to ALLOCATE YOUR VOLUNTEER POINTS to the team of your choice. The team will not receive credit toward participation in the playoffs until you do.
Select the “Allocate Points” link under the Referee tab and you will see a screen like the one below. All your completed assignments will display and you will be able to assign each one to the team of your choice. To allocate a game select the desired team from the Team Credited list box and press the UPDATE TEAMS CREDITED button. We are aware that you are going to receive 2 points for each game, while the system currently only shows 1. We will update that manually as the season goes on so please be patient. You will see an extra point for each Field Monitor shift you complete. But again, be sure to allocate those extra points as well to the team of your choice.
As always, if you get stuck, email Jeff Wolfe at email@example.com and we’ll help you out.
