Ratings Form

February 9, 2012

We now have an online ratings form. It will take a little getting used to, but it is pretty straight forward. If you get an error message, it means that you either entered invalid characters (like ! @ ? or something like that), you didn’t fill in part of the form, or that you didn’t leave a long enough comment. When you fill out the form, a copy of it will be sent to you and your partner (if you put his/her email address in the form). Remember, the point of ratings is to make us all better umpires. Giving everyone a “1” and leaving comments such as “no comment” does us no good at all. On the other hand, this is not the area to berate our fellow officials, either. You should put into the ratings what you told your partner at your postgame. (You did have a postgame, right?)

Welcome to the San Gabriel Valley Softball Umpires Association website. This is the first year of our new website. Members will be able to log on and access all the information needed to be informed about San Gabriel Valley Softball. Each day more information will be added, such as meeting dates, Officers and Board of Directors. We will also post e-mail addresses, upcoming events and playoff information. Members will also log on to post ratings and print game cards. Hopefully this will be a large step in moving SGVSUA to the elite status in the CIF.
