Video Submission Policy

If you have video involving good examples of fouls or non-fouls, you are encouraged to submit them to the UMLOA. By submitting such video, you are stating that you are either the copyright holder and that you grant permission to the UMLOA to use the video for training of officials in any format or that you have obtained permission from the copyright holder for such use. The video will be submitted to the rules interpreter for the league in question.

Whenever possible, please send enough video so that it's possible to see the context of the play (at least 30 seconds on either side of the play in question). In some cases, it may make more sense to submit the entire game on DVD with notes indicating what to look for based on the DVD time stamp.

For all cases involving judgment issues rather than rules interpretation, we appreciate your submission and may use it for future training and development of officials, if appropriate, so we can continue to improve.

Please note that, absent a formal complaint, we are unable to comment on the calls or non-calls involved in the play or on any sanctions involving the game officials. However, if there is a problem deserving sanctions of the official, the rules interpreter will forward that video the the discipline committe of the UMLOA even without a formal complaint.
