Week 2 Recap:
Did you know that all games in the U-10, U-12, & U-16 division were covered by a least 1 referee? This is awesome games coverage and I applaud everyone that covered games last week. I hope we can keep the momentum rolling as we have a gooding thing going.
Referee Recognitions for Week 2:
I would like to recognize Bill Lukens and Brian Eddy. Bill and Brian stayed over to cover the U-19 scrimmage because the U-19 game was cancelled. Even though this was not required, I am sure it may the scrimmage feel more like a game. As I was leaving, you could hear the players having a good time on the field. Thank you Bill and Brian for going the extra mile.
I have noticed during my walks through the park that there is a lot of flagging twirling with assistant referees. Please remember that the flag should be still unless you are making a signal. This is very important for youth and new referees. Referee mechanics is very important and proper mechanics will help you “sell a call” when you need to.
We have busy week and game coverage is looking good. We could use more coverage for the late morning and afternoon games. Now for the bad news, I will not be onsite this weekend. Work has brought me into a facility move project at the last minute. It requires me to move an entire facilities network on Saturday. I will drop of the game book and completed game card box. Those items will be located in the Shed. I am looking for a few volunteers to makes sure those items are visible on table Saturday. In addition, those items need to make it back to the shed at the end of the day. Please send me a note if you can help.
