New Opportunities

The new season is nearly here, with it comes new ideas, new rules and new opportunities.

One of the best ideas I have heard is, “No spectators on the sideline area directly behind the assistant referees.”  [See: Diagonal Spectator Viewing Area]. Why is this so good?

Every year many referees quit the game because of abuse from the spectators and coaches. With no spectators behind the assistant referee, the referee will be able to concentrate on their game.

So this season let us all work together to make our children’s experience rewarding and fun, remember many of our children are referees as well as players.
