******************************************************************      Ratings

There are always questions on how ratings are calculated.

Here is a summary on how your rating is calculated. Keep in mind your current rating is a combined rating for the past two seasons.

Ideally after every game, each coach fills out a rating card and sends it in to BOCES. BOCES takes those ratings and adds them up and divides by the number of ratings to get the coaches contribution to your rating. This rating constitutes 60% of your overall rating. Under certain circumstances, rating cards are thrown out. A game with an ejection is an example of a reason why a card is thrown out.

BOCES gives you up to 10 office points. Points can be deducted for turn backs, being late, etc. These points make up 10% of your rating.

You can receive up to 30 points from our Association. These points make up the remaining 30% of your rating.

Here is how you earn your 30 points:

Being a member: 6 points

Test Score:

84-100 7 points

80-83 6 points

74-79 5 points

Attendance: 6 points (missing a mandatory meeting without a written excuse takes 5 points from this category)

Service: 5 points

Return of Sportsmanship Ballot on Time: 3 points

Paying dues on time: 3 points

The Nassau County Softball Officials Association would like to acknowledge the heroic actions of one of our own, Gibson Barriga.
  During a recent game, Gibson noticed a player in the dugout was choking.  Gibson immediately took action performing the Heimlich maneuver on the young player causing the food she was choking on to be dislodged.  His quick action and skill undoubtable save this young athlete’s life.  We are very proud of Gibson as he showed the true spirit of our Association!  Thanks, Gibson.

***********************************************************************************************************************It has been discovered that there is a rubber covered electronic device that can be attached to a grip knob that calculates bat speed, power numbers etc.  It is something that was not manufactured as "approved".  It is something electronic to be carried onto the field as well.  During your mandatory bat and helmet inspection, look at the bottom of the knob.  Do not allow bat to be used in the game.  Talk to coaches also as a pre-game instruction mentioning the altered bat penalties of "out" and ejection if such a bat is even taken into the batter's box by a batter.
