Communicate easily with your judges
Cup Manager's system for referees handles both the notification and appointment of referees to matches. You get a full overview of the situation at all times and you avoid double bookings and also "close to double bookings". You can easily communicate to the referees by sending a direct link to their added matches or sending SMS during the tournament.
We also have extra functions to manage referee licences, referee salaries, evaluations
Registration - features and overview
Just as the law can register via a form, the judges can also register themselves via your website. It reduces your administration compared to dealing with referee notifications in a separate system.
There are many possibilities to adapt what tasks judges should fill in when they register.
All judges who have signed up are shown inside the system. Here you can see their details and choose to approve or deny the respective judge.
When you do, you can have the system send automatic emails to the judges to inform them.
For referees there is equally advanced filtering, so you can find all the referees who have indicated that they have a certain license, or all referees who have been awarded matches on Sunday.
This filtering is also the basis for the mailings so you can choose to send emails to a certain part of all judges.
You can let the judges choose times that suit them best to work. They can choose for each tournament day if, for example, they want to work morning, afternoon or both.
You can then easily take this into account when adding.
All tournaments are different and you have the opportunity to add which licenses the referees should be allowed to choose from. You can then use the license to add easier.
Appointment - functions and overview
When you appoint referees to matches, Cup Manager help to show real-time alerts in case you happen to double-book referees, or give the same referee two matches in different halls too close in time.
It is also possible to govern with licenses so some judges should only judge certain classes.
As an extension of the refereeing system, we have developed a solution where special referee coaches can evaluate referee performance in matches and write a review to help referees develop further.
You can specify for yourself which criteria should be included in the evaluations.
The evaluations will be approved by you at the tournament before they are shown to the referee.
You can choose which referee positions should be in each age group. When appointing, you can easily choose which position each judge should be assigned to. This referee position is displayed and in the judges' online schedule so they know.
The position may also affect the judges' pay (see below).
Once you have appointed the referees to matches, you can send out personal emails to all referees with a link so that they can see which matches to referee.
The link is of course "live" so all changes you make to the system are reflected in the link.
This will be smooth to reduce misunderstandings.
Sometimes referees switch matches with each other.
Our solution for live reporting results can be handled by the referees themselves or a secretariat at the match. After the match is finished, it is possible to verify that it was the right referee who refereed the match.
This ensures that the information about which referee judged which match is right is the basis for the salary calculation.
In Cup Manager, we have built a system for calculating judges' salaries and generating salary bases.
You can set how much compensation referees receive for different types of matches, depending on the age group, whether it was group play/playoffs, the referee's position and other factors.
The system aggregates all matches that the referee has judged according to the rules and generates a receipt that you can use as a basis for the referee's salary.
Smoothly we think!
You are the best at referees, feel free to contact us to realize your ideas.
