Change in Reporting Sport Ejections

Posted by | April 5, 2013 .

As in the past you may continue to go to the OHSAA website, www.ohsaa.org, and click on Officiating, then click on Ejections.  The actual link to that page is still – http://www.ohsaa.org/officials/officialsreport.htm

Once you click on the link it will take you to the Officials Portal (or SMART Official).  The address for that is: officials.myohsaa.org to log in. You will need to log into the site prior to clicking on the side menu for Ejections.  Use your MyOHSAA username and password to enter the site. Usernames and passwords are case sensitive. (the logins were not case sensitive for myOHSAA).  If you are unsure of the case for your username and password, you can login to myOHSAA and click on My Profile along the left side of your screen to view your username and password. Return to officials.myohsaa.org to type in your case sensitive login.

We recommend logging on prior to having to submit a report as some users will need to verify their email address before they can complete the Ejection Form. Please log into your account at officials.myohsaa.org.  Next, click the link to verify your email. Follow the instructions on the new page to complete the email verification process. After you’ve verified your email address, you can complete the Ejection Form process as outlined below.

If you have not been on this site prior it will also direct you to answer your felony status.  You will see the “indicate felony status” and “verify your email” notifications on your dashboard.  Once you click felony status, the site will direct you to your contact information where you will answer that question.  This statement is for those officials that do not have an active permit.  Everyone else will mark this no.

Once logged into your Smart Official account, click the Official Tab near the upper right corner of the screen. Next, select the “Submit New Ejection Form” option along the left side of the page. Enter the details of the report and submit your report electronically.  Note: Once you press the Submit Report tab emails will be sent automatically to the school and the OHSAA.  Please see the User Guide at the end of this email for more details about how to complete the Ejection Form. The User Guide is also available to download along the left side of your Smart Official account.

This site is where all new officials have registered for an adult education class and taken their tests.  It has worked very well.  All officials have been brought over from myOHSAA now so we are encouraging you to login to officials.myohsaa.org  from now on.  From the site, you can click on My Assignments which will allow you to view, accept and decline contracts as you have in myOHSAA. 

This email has been sent to all spring sport officials; please do not call the office on this.  If you have any problems getting into the system you can contact tech@digitalscout.com
