All About Game Coordinators

What is a Game Coordinator?

Also known as GC's, Game Coordinators play an important role in many OSSC leagues. GC's are part-time members of the staff team you may see during your evening games in brightly coloured "STAFF" shirts.

You can provide your feedback about onsite Game Coordinators! Read how.

You will often see Game Coordinators out during the following league sports:

  • Volleyball
  • All-Sorts-of-Sports
  • Floor Hockey (Indoor & Outdoor)
  • Turf Leagues
  • Innertube Water Polo
  • Badminton
  • Ping Pong
  • All-Sorts-of-Bar Games
  • Tournaments
  • Facilities with multiple playing surfaces

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The role of the Game Coordinator is to:

  • Be a neutral supporter of both teams in every game
  • Set up equipment at facilities (if required)
  • Help keep games on schedule
  • Encourage pre-game captains meetings
  • Be a resource for teams & players that have questions about rules or upcoming events
  • Score keep for games (if possible)
  • Manage equipment tracking & report equipment shortages for each facility
  • Report any incidents to OSSC office staff
  • Promote upcoming leagues, events and tournament to OSSC Members
  • Have fun & socialize with OSSC Members!

Game Coordinators ARE NOT REFEREES.

But they are present to help diffuse conflict and to be a mediator in our self-officiated game settings.

Game Coordinators do have the authority to attempt to deescalate situations and conflict that may occur during a game. This could include; brief stoppages of play, issuing warnings to specific players, issuing warnings to specific teams, removal of players from the game and the facility or ending the game if required.

Game Coordinators will do their best to keep the spirit of the game high by giving teams the opportunity to adjust their playing level before ending a game.

Please respect the job OSSC Game Coordinators are there to do!
