We are fortunate to have a good crew of experienced refs returning for this recreation season and the 2018 MYB Referee Training will be conducted in a different manner than in prior years. A training presentation will soon be available and provided to all of the registered refs with important information and details about the program including:
Ref assignments and expected communication
Finding a suitable replacement ref when necessary
Ref shirts and whistles
Proper ref positioning and court coverage
Game scoring and time keeping
Rules -- keep it fair and safe for the players
Managing the games -- maintaining control and sticking to the schedule, handling other issues
Interacting with other refs, players, coaches, fans, coordinators, etc.
For the 2018 season, our many refs registered (40) will have opportunities to referee MYB rec games from Sat Jan 6th through Sat March 10th. As in the past, preference for game assignments will typically go to the more experienced refs, those with good basketball / officiating experience, those who are reliable and do a good job in the games they are assigned. There may be some limited opportunities for newer refs who are available when needed and can do a good job. I'm always looking for refs who can hustle, be in position, blow the whistle and interact well with the kids. The success of the rec program is closely connected to the effort and attitude of the MYB refs working the games.
Please don't hesitate to communicate with me at any point with questions or feedback. Thank you for your interest and participation in the MYB Referee program and good luck on the courts!
