******************************************************************      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

NYSSO’s formal ruling which takes into consideration both the medical concerns of the individual player and the safety of all players is:  To be permitted to play, any student athlete wearing a migraine earring in a daith piercing shall provide written notice from certified medical personnel stating the necessity of such an earring.  The earring shall be covered with tape.  The player would also need a waiver from NYSPHSAA - the procedure/form outlined on the NYSPHSAA  web site calls for the player's doctor to provide documentation to Public High School and then it would provide the official waiver form/letter to the player.....

 

This is the document that should be presented to the umpire....

"OFFO" SITUATION WHEN PLAYING A DP/FLEX GAME

 

         First of all the term "offo" represents a player playing offense only who is not operating in the game in the original dp slot of the lineup.  

         When a coach wants to have both the dp and the flex on the field as defensive players, an "offo"          player comes into consideration.

         For example,  The original line-up has #5 batting slot for dp who is batting only.  #10 slot has flex as pitcher playing defense only.  Now coach wants both dp and flex on defense.  So, flex stays in as pitcher, dp also can go into any defensive position - let's say catcher.  Coach now tells you who will be sitting in dugout as "offo" player (let's say right fielder in batting slot #7).  No one has left the game and no one has entered the game.  You still have 9 batters in their original order of hitting.  Coach can still later return the slot #5 dp back to pitching only and offo back to her batting and fielding responsibilities without having anyone leaving the game with flex still on defense only (for any defensive position).   Remember, to switch to a 9 player game, the flex can only move up to the original (circled by you before the game) dp batting slot (#5 in order).  At that point, all 9 bat and play the field.  The dp has exited the game. The flex has never left the game.  Another way of switching to a 9 player game is if the flex exits. 

         This procedure can be done throughout the game. However, remember that if the original dp starter re-enters and then leaves again, she is done for the day.
