Online Evaulation forms on the "Resources" page
All Varsity level officials are to observe the JV officials at every game and submit an observation form within 24-48 hours of the game. Just click the link to the appropriate form (Boy/Girls) and complete it online. You will receive a confirmation page if you completed the form correctly. A hard-copy form is also available for your use to make notes at the game site.

REMINDER: Failure to submit observation forms during the regular season MAY AFFECT post-season assignments.

Turn-backs during the season:
REMEMBER: It is your responsibility to contact Vince Marachel ASAP if you need to turn back an assignment. Unless it is within 24 hours of the game time, EMAIL your turnback to Vince. Emails submitted within 24 hours of the scheduled game time, unless sumitted with a follow-up text message or phone call (717) 487-3487, will NOT be acknowledged as received.
Turnbacks due to an illness should be made as soon as you feel ill. If you do not feel well the night before a game - or the morning of a game - DO NOT WAIT until lunchtime to turn back the game. The sooner you contact Mike, the easier it will be to obtain a replacement. Be courteous to the re-assignor and to your fellow officials
