Starting in the 2017 season, the Red Deer Softball Umpires Association will be using Arbiter, a web-based program, to assign games for regular league play. All umpires will be required to use this system. As well, a new Assignor will be overseeing the assigning process.
Details were provided at the 2017 Umpire Clinic, including a user guide with directions to help you use the online system to create your account, block days when not available, and accept or decline assignments.
The new Assignor for 2017 is Lisa LeMasurier. If you have questions for Lisa, she can be reached via email at email@example.com.
RDSUA is responsible for providing umpires for tournaments hosted within the Zone 4 region.
In 2017, RDSUA officials worked tournaments every weekend in May and June. Some weekends are very busy, with more than one tournament that needs umpires assigned.
At the 2018 Umpire Clinic in April, the tournament schedule for the summer will be handed out, and each umpire asked for his/her availability. As many umpires as possible are needed each weekend; if you have availability even for one day, let us know.
