FAQ

How do I create a GotSport account?

If this is your first time logging into GotSport, please reach out to your Assignor so that they may add your account into the system and/or confirm your UserID/Email. Once you have your UserID/Email, access GotSport at system.gotsport.com. If you don’t know your password, click on “Forgot Password“. An email will be sent to you with directions on how to reset your password. Make sure to check your Junk/Spam folder if you do not see the email in your inbox.

As a Referee, where can I set my availability?

To set your “Availability” as a Referee in GotSport, you would set “Blackout” dates and times on your individual GotSport Account on the Referee tab. The following link provides detailed instructions.

Creating Availability Blackouts as a Referee 

As an Assignor, how do I get access to assign a tournament or league?

For an Assignor to view an event and the schedules, they would need to request access to the tournament or league, and be approved by the Event Director. The following link provides instructions on requesting access:

Requesting Access to an Event as a Referee Assignor

As an Assignor, I'm not seeing any of my Referees to assign?

If your Referees are part of your pool, but aren’t seeing them available to assign, they will need to be added to the event:

Adding Referees to an Event

As an Assignor, how do I stop Referees from seeing matches before I've completed assignments?

By default, all matches are not published, which is the setting that “hides” matches from the referee, until the assignor decides to allow referees to see assignments. To make assignments visible to referees, matches will need to be set to published on the Match List. The following link provides instructions on how to publish and un-publish assignments:

How to Publish/Unpublish Referee Assignments

As an Assignor, how do I let Referees know they have matches?

GotSport offers different options when it comes to notifying referees of their matches; either individually or in bulk.

Notify Referees of their Offered Assignments

As an Assignor, why are Referees not seeing their offered assignments?

If an Assignor has their match schedule set to “Unpublished”, the Referee will not see any offered or accepted matches. These matches would need to be set to “Published” on the Match List, in order for the referee to see the matches on their account Referee tab.

As an Assignor, a match was changed and my assignments have disappeared?

If a match has assignments, offered or accepted and the event makes a change to any combination of match’s date, time, field, or venue, the match will be highlighted on the Match Chart, Match List, and Detail pages of the event.  All assignments will be set to “stale” which requires that the previous assignments be either:

  • Restored – Place previously assigned referee back on the match. This would require the referees to accept the match again.
  • Clear – This will clear previous assignments and allow for new officials to be assigned.

 The following articles provide instructions on how to address matches that have been changed:

Assignors and Event Directors, how do I upload a schedule?

The Event Director and Assignor, both have the capability to upload an external schedule to an event. Certain elements must be set before uploading. The following article provides instructions on how to import external schedules:
