    Umpire – Penalty Administration

    LESSON 9


    Administration of penalties introduction

    Administration of PenaltiesIntroduction

    The placement of the ball on penalty situations is a primary responsibility of the Umpire.

    When a penalty is being reported the Umpire must be with the Referee, and remain with the Referee while the penalty options are being given and until the umpire has been instructed to apply the penalty.

    The Umpire should be aware of the infraction being called to ensure that the Referee has given the correct penalty options.

    In effect the Umpire must assist the Referee in administering all penalties


    Administration of penalties

    Administration of Penalties

    • Knowing infractions(s) and option

    • Carry the ball – distance given by Referee

    • Avoid pacing off distance – if lines are available

    • Check distance with the Referee and Head Linesman

    • Assist Referee with time (Hold/Go)

    Mechanics and positioning

    Mechanics and Positioning

    • Mechanics refers to the routine procedure surrounding what the official does.

    • The two primary areas of mechanics are signaling and positioning.

    • When more than one official is involve “Teamwork” becomes a third area of mechanics, where in additional signaling and positioning responsibilities are necessary.

    • The mechanics of positioning, signaling and teamwork are all of the essential importance to a professional performance.

    • Good positioning, is necessary if you are to see what you are supposed to see.

    • Sharp, unhesitating and un-hurried signals are necessary to communicate your decisions and to build the confidence of everyone regarding your officiating ability

    • Commonly recognized teamwork procedures are necessary to ensure to the greatest extent that (a) every conceivable action is covered and ruled upon and

      (b) disagreement is eliminated or minimized

    • When proper mechanics are performed precisely, the game progresses without confusion of unnecessary delay.

    • Good mechanics are not too difficult to develop if correct habits are established early in the officiating career.
