Scheduling Policy
Referee scheduling for Flag Football Fanatics will be performed by the referee assigner or someone from the Director of Officials’ office. All referees will be held accountable for those games on the referee schedule and must give at least a 24-hour notice if unable to officiate on such a day. A referee who fails to follow the call-off procedure outlined in this policy may be removed from the referee schedule at the discretion of the referee assigner. If you “no call, no show,” we will not mail your previous check. You will have to pick up your check at our main office 4092 Anson Dr. Hilliard, OH 43026. Please give us 24 hours noticed if you will not be able to make it to your location. All referee scheduling is subject to change and we do not guarantee that you will be able to referee at your “Main” location every week however we do strive to achieve that goal when possible.
