Officials Ratings Cross Country

posted Sep 29, 2014, 4:59 AM by ITCCOA Webmaster

Fellow Officials,

A few weeks ago I had announced the availability of Officials Ratings for Cross Country.  The system is up and running, thanks to Ron McGraw, Scott Johnson and Tracie Sprout. Some of you who have received ratings certainly noticed you did not see a Rating Percentile nor a Top 15 Percentile.  Those columns will not be populated until next year, as the IHSA would like to see a second year of input started before calculating averages.  That goes for the Power Rating, as well. We will see that after the start of the 2015 CC season.  So all we will see this season is the number of ratings which have been submitted by coaches. You can disregard the column which calls out ratings by officials. The IHSA suspended that practice for all sports a few years ago.

For those who desire, you can start spreading the word for coaches to log on the website and submit ratings. Many will figure it out without us having to tell them.

If you have specific questions regarding the rating process, the system or info on the website itself, please contact Tracie Sprout in the Officials Center.

Hope you are having a good season.

All the best,

Dave Facker
