Rent-a-Umpire FQA’s:

Question: Once a Rent-An-Umpire request is made, can it be withdrawn? Will the money be fully refunded?

Answer: ABSOLUTELY NOT. You cannot withdraw your request. We want the teams to use DCL Rent-An-Umpire as a last option. Once all your options are exhausted then only, please submit your Rent-An-Umpire Request to DCL. We don’t want to spend any time looking into your request or work on any type of refunds as it is time consuming. Once a request is made to DCL [dclumpires] and the Rental umpiring fees are paid DCL will only refund the amount if we are notable to find any umpires for your team.  We are just trying to help teams find rental umpires as a courtesy. 

Rent-An-Umpire should always be the last option. Ideally no teams / individual should Rent-An-Umpire. Every team should mandate their teammates and should be very clear with them when they join the team about umpiring assignments. As soon as the complete schedule is published/released by DCL Management for the season, the Team Captain/Vice Captain/Manager should assign their teammates the umpiring assignments. If they are not ready to do the umpiring the team Captain/Vice-Captain/Manager should ask them to try the Rent-An-Umpire Option by making the payment to DCL [see details below on how to make the payment]

Question:If the game is cancelled due to walkover or Bad weather called off a day prior,will I get refund.

Answer: ABSOLUTELY NOT. Once request is done and an umpire is found the refund cannot be requested. Teams are requested to use accu-weather to determine if they need rental. Similarly, if walk over is given by a team, umpiring fees will not be refunded.

Question:If the assigned umpire does not show up for game, will I get refund.

Answer: ABSOLUTELYNOT.

Question: I have paid for a Rental Umpire request; will DCL guarantee that they will find us an Umpire?

Ans: Absolutely NOT !!! , DCL will help the teams in finding a Rental Umpire from its pool of Umpires depending on their availability. If DCL cannot find an umpire by Friday 10:00 am, a full refund will be issued to the requesting teams by the following Wednesday.It then becomes the requesting team’s responsibility to arrange for their own umpire and fulfill their umpiring assignment. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT for TEAMS TO CHECK FB POST FOR APPROVED UMPIRES. It is not DCL RESPONSIBILITIES IF THE CAPTAIN/VICE CAPTAIN is out of town and don’t have access to FB to check Friday 10 am that is not an excuse we want to hear especially for the new teams

Question: How will the individual requesting a rental umpire know ifDCL Management has found an umpire for his request?

Ans: You need to have a Facebook account and must be a member of DCL’s Official Facebook Group. Check the official DCL Facebook Group by 10:00 am Friday. DCL will post the list of all the requests received / processed and publish the name of the assigned umpire for each request. If in that list you see “Pending”against the assigned umpire it’s implied that Rental umpire was not found and team requesting must take care of the assignment, if any interested person replies to the post and shows interest in taking up the pending assignment will post his interest and then DCL organizers will assign the umpire from the FB post.

Question: Howlarge is the DCL’s Rent-An-Umpire pool?

Ans: DCL has about 200+Rent–An-Umpires [certified + non-certified] who have shown interest in umpiring DCL games. This list keeps on increasing.

Question: I cannot see posts on DCL Facebook page?

If you don’t see a post on the DCL Facebook group, then please try to reach out to the DCL organizers. If you are not able to contact DCL Organizers, then please go ahead and do your own umpiring. Later on ask DCL for a full refund.

List ofDCL organizers can be found at http://www.dallascricket.net/Main/leadership.aspx


Question: DCL Management I as a registered Umpire on dclumpires@gmail.com
dclumpires@dallascricket.net already requested for an umpire assignment but why someone else is assigned to that request?

Answer: Umpires are assigned on a first come first served basis, if you are not assigned to your request then, Either, someone else has responded to that request before you. Or, you are a non certified umpire requesting for a certified umpire assignment.

 

Question:When are the payments processed for rental duty or Refunds?

Answer:  All payments are processed by DCL organizers by Wednesday, unless the organizer is busy with work schedule, Be rest assured payment will be processed by Thursday. Remember person doing all the umpiring assignments does this as volunteer and doesn’t gets paid for this.

Question: I am interested in umpiring DCL / DLCL games please let me know the process on how do I get notified about these Rental Umpire Requests.

Ans: Interested umpires must send an email to  dclumpires@gmail.com / dclumpires@dallascricket.net  Please mention the following in your email

6) A refundable deposit of $50 as an assurance from the umpires not to miss any umpiring duty.  Deposit can be paid all at once or can be from first rental game. Deposit will be refunded when the umpire requests his name to be removed from the list.


Question: Why is the deposit of $50 taken from interested rental umpires?


Ans: 
If a rental umpire misses an umpiring (due to any reasons) he will have to pay penalty of $50 for missing umpiring.

Their name will not be added back until the umpire does not pays the fine.
