05/01/17 – 2017 Officiate Kentucky Day Reminder

Officials Division Blog Updates

Officials are reminded that Officiate Kentucky Day (OKD) will take place on Saturday, July 29th in Louisville. Space for this event is limited (and is already more than 50% sold out) and registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Particularly for those sports that require Advanced Camp attendance to be considered for the postseason (Softball, Baseball, Volleyball and Soccer currently, and Football and Basketball beginning with the 2018-2019 seasons), attendance at OKD will satisfy this requirement for a four-year period! Please note this will be the only event offered this year in any sport that will meet the Advanced Camp requirement.

Following OKD, the National Association of Sports Officials (NASO) will be having its Annual Summit at the same venue from July 30th until August 1st. Both events will provide a great opportunity to be exposed to the highest levels and advanced topics in officiating today.

01/03/17 – ArbiterPay Option for Schools for Payment of Officials

Athletic Department Blog Updates

As was shared with those that were attendance at the Annual Meeting, the KHSAA has now finalized a review and approval giving member schools the option to pay licensed officials online (some schools have already started using this service) through ArbiterPay (A Division of Arbiter Sports).

While the assignment of officials has been done through Arbitersports.com in the past, this added resource (ArbiterPay) has been reviewed and approved by the KHSAA Board of Control and has been given positive referral by the Kentucky State Auditor’s office.

ArbiterPay Questions
What is ArbiterPay?
ArbiterPay or “RefPay” is the web based software that pays officials electronically through Electronic Funds Transfer (ETF). ArbiterPay is completely integrated with ArbiterOne so school administration can pay officials with the click of a button once the system is properly configured.

What are the benefits of paying officials through ArbiterPay?

  • Can eliminate vouchers
  • Eliminates check processing
  • Eliminates checks to the wrong official
  • Eliminates postage
  • Eliminates lost or stolen checks
  • Eliminates bookkeeping headaches
  • Eliminates stop […]
