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Question: Once a Rent-An-Umpire request is made,can it be withdrawn?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 theteams to use DCL Rent-An-Umpire as a last option. Once all your options areexhausted then only, please submit your Rent-An-Umpire Request to DCL. We don’twant to spend any time looking into your request or work on any type of refundsas it is time consuming. Once a request is made to DCL [dclumpires] and theRental umpiring fees are paid DCL will only refund the amount if we are unableto find any umpires for your team.  We are just trying to help teams findrental umpires as a courtesy. 

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

Question: If the game iscancelled due to walkover or Bad weather called off a day prior, will I getrefund.

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

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

Answer: ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Question: I havepaid for a Rental Umpire request; will DCL guarantee that they will find us anUmpire?

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS VERYIMPORTANT for TEAMS TO CHECK FB POST FOR APPROVED UMPIRES.
