Umpire or Coach payments

  • Updated 9 months ago
We have to pay our umpires and I would like to improve the mechanism we use.
Currently, when the umpire is a club member, we have to send emails around then manually credit their account.

We did experiment with selecting someone as an umpire for a match, but they were unfortunately charged a match fee!

Could something be done so that if someone is selected in the umpire position a different "fee" is applied - one that is actually a payment?

Alternatively, is it possible to have a negative match fee - I am thinking we might create a specific umpires membership category, then allocate a -ve match fee to that category
As Ever I would be interested to hear any thoughts or suggestions (I added coach payment to the title as we might want to do something similar for match day or training coaches)

We would like the same. We want to notify an umpire of match but make sure he does not get charged. We would also like a 0% option for when a player may be chosen for two teams but only pays one match fee

Hi all,

I very much agree with this. We would like a way where you can select the umpire for any given match (they may be a player in the club, so there needs to be a way of when you "select" them for the match - you can set them as the umpire, not a player).

And when selected for a match, they are notified of the match by email (this needs to say they are the umpire not a playing) and when the match record is completed, they are remunerated with the correct credit.

We actually have different levels of credit in our club for umpires as it depends on how qualified they are. So in order for us to use it the system would need to be able to support this as well. There almost needs to be a secondary member category for umpiring. Happy to discuss further on the needs.

Is there anything that exists currently on ClubBuzz that can support this?

And are there any plans to update the system so it can support the above scenario?
