V406 - 3/6/2024

Coaches in ArbiterGame. We are really happy to share we're expanding your coach management tools within Arbiter:
Add your coaches to teams and limit their visibility to those teams under the Team Roster page.


Select a coach and choose the Scope option to limit coach visibility


Coaches can be given titles specific to their role for that team (Head Coach, Assistant Coach, 1st Base Coach, Offensive Coordinator, etc.)


Give your coaches their team specific role


Coaches that are scoped with limited visibility will only have access to their assigned teams when navigating throughout the ArbiterGame dashboard, including on the schedule page and when creating games.


Coaches that are scoped can be identified by the icon you see above


Track which teams have coaches set up with the new column on the Teams page in ArbiterGame. The color of the whistle will change to green when a team has coaches set up for the current school year.


Status icon will update if the team has data for the current school year


When assigning, if the assigner is making updates to the schedule on a page other than page 1, we will now return that assigner to the page where updates are being made. Previously, the assigner would be returned to page 1 of the schedule.


Mobile App: Scores were unable to be added or edited. School admins with access can add and edit scores in the mobile app for their schools.
Evaluations: Completed evaluations were not showing the Home and Away teams. Home and Away teams will be displayed on completed evaluations.


Eligibility & Registration (Officials)
If using a custom date filter under Monitor Eligibility, the filter would reset when navigating away from the page and returning. That functionality has been fixed to where your date filter will save until updated.


V405 - 3/20/2024

The Coach role in ArbiterGame has been separated into two separate coaching roles, Head Coach and Assistant Coach. All users who were previously a Coach role will be converted to a Head Coach role.

Coming Soon! - Schools will be able to assign coaches to teams and scope the coaches to their specific teams.

Assigners can now choose to include Custom Game IDs on the Game Reports.


Fixed an issue with scores not showing for Assigners in the Game Reports.

Eligibility & Registration (Officials)​​​​​​​

V402 - 2/7/2024


Site Updates
Officials Consolidation

Officials will now be sent directly to the Dashboard page within their Arbiter account after logging in. Officials can manage all of their daily tasks for any of their assigning groups from the one My Account dashboard.



Updating Status of Games in ArbiterGame

When updating the status of a game or games using the 'Action' tool, associated parties will now be shown the details related to the games where the status is being updated.

V401 - 1/24/2024

Schools are now able to export a full list of their officials! Schools can use the new 'Export Officials' feature to pull an excel spreadsheet with their official's information from a school's account. Schools can then use that exported spreadsheet to import those same Officials into another school's account. This will allow schools to easily share lists of officials.




School users who have ONLY one School account and any amount of Contact roles will now land in their school account to be able to manage everything in one place!

Some of the dates for the Accept-By-Dates in the New Game Email for officials were being set incorrectly when manually assigning the slot as published or when updating a slot status to Publish from Pending. The dates will now be the ones set by the assigning Association.
The Forms page for officials would return no forms if they were only a part of one Associations. They will now see forms regardless of the number of groups they are in.





V325 & 326 - 1/10/2024


  • Create New Alignment: State Associations can now enter their current and future School alignment structure within Arbiter. This gives all States the ability to properly manage their alignment from year to year during realignment. States will be able to choose how many levels their alignment has, and the alignment types the State supports. Once the structure is built, States can add schools to specific alignment levels.


States will be able to specify school year, sport, gender, season and the structure type for their alignment



  • Phone numbers were not being included for when a School would export their list of Event Workers.

This release we've made progress on an upcoming major feature for Injury Management!
