The Officials REST API allows organizations to retrieve officials data through a REST API.  The information is real time but limited to a max of 10,000 records per day.  As a REST service, after getting your permissions set up you can access the information through a browser at 



in order to access information you must be an admin in the account and request access to the API Tech Services at  The information available through the API will depend on the permissions set up on the admin account.  For example, if an admin account does not have permission to monitor tests, that account won't have access to tests through the REST API.

    What about assignment information? Can I get all assigned officials for a given match/game, for example?

    Steve - That information is available but requires that you have a partner account with us. Are you looking for this information just for your own schedule?

    The assignor for group 107444 assigns refs to a tournament. I want to pull their assignments on her behalf (it could be with an account for her organization) to combine assignments with other demographic data to track their assignment across the season.

    Steve - For now, our APIs are only available for partners. We don't have the access available for individual assigners. I'll update you if we go that direction.

    How does one become a partner? Are you referring to these organizations?

    If so, I think you're telling me that I can't use the APIs.

    Steve - Currently our partners are limited to state and national governing bodies. As we build out the network, we hope to make the APIs available to a broader group.
