My Pre-Game

officiatingatoz 

 

Before my games, I generally prepare myself mentally.  Sometimes, I’ll run through the “Officiating A to Z, Referee Goals for Every Game you Work” handout.  It’s a great way to review of some key philosophies to calling a good game.

Here’s the link to download the handout:  https://www.ipaboa.com/downloads23.html?task=download.send&id=5&catid=3&m=0

Here are my top 5.

  • Awareness.The key word to success — keep a high concentration level.
  • Impact.Know when you blow the whistle it may have an effect on the game. Always be sure. (Remember letter G above!)
  • Jump first.When defenders jump first, find the point of contact. It’s hard to have marginal contact on a jump shooter. Locate where he or she touches the offensive player first.
  • No corners, only strikes.When calling in your secondary area, throw a strike — not on the corners, but right down the middle.
  • eXecute your principles. Use the same principles every night. Work them and that will make you consistent.

What are you top 5?
