  5. Pre-game with the Coaches“You’ll never have a second chance to make a first impression” • Talk to the Home Team Coach First... • Introduce yourselves • Give them the officials “line-up card” • Read the PIAA certification (not for the InterAc) • Fill out your game day scorecard • Ask / discuss any other details (e.g. national anthem, line-up, etc.) • How to handle inclement weather / lightning? • How will you be compensated? • Any rules clarifications / questions? Do NOT judge previous calls! • Talk to the Visiting Team Coach next.. • (repeat)

  6. On the Field • Check the Field • Goals and nets • Field markings • Conditions (e.g. mud, creases) • Obstructions (e.g. soccer goals, etc.) • Check with the Table Personnel / Score Book • The table is at least 6 yards from the field if possible. • Any rule changes from last year to review with the Table personnel? • Keeping track of personal fouls & minutes

  8. During the Game… • Three types of communication • Audio (whistle and verbal) • Signals / Body position • Eye contact • Audio (whistle and verbal) • Whistle to start / stop play, vary volume and length. • Talk to your partners during play. • “I’ve got your sideline Mark”, “Thanks Dale” • “Whadda ya think Dale, are they stalling?” • “I’ve got your goal Mark”, “Thanks Dale”, “I’m back Dale”

  9. During the Game… • Signals and Body Position • Know your signals and use them! Over-emphasize! • Announce (signal) your fouls to your partner(s) first. • Be in the right position for the call and to start play. • Show your partners that you’re ready to re-start play. • Adjust your field position to maintain your 3 man “triangle” or keep your diagonal “string” (2 man) and keep all play in front of you. • Eye Contact • Make eye contact throughout the game esp. on starts / re-starts. • Watch your partner(s) position frequently.

  10. During the Game… • During time-outs • Which team called the time-out, how many left, what time in the game? • Did they get the ball in the offensive zone before calling the time-out? • What count do they get on the re-start, if any? • After a goal • What color team and which # player scored? • Between quarters and at half-time (be proactive) • Confirm the score and penalty situation with the Table. • Are we keeping players safe? • Even or un-even face-off? Penalty time remaining? • Everything ok (e.g. coaches, players, contact, sportsmanship)? • Are we calling the game consistently?

  11. After the game… • The game ends……… • Confirm the score. • Leave the field together after the teams cross on their way to their benches. • Do NOT discuss the game further with coaches, players, fans, etc. • Get to a “quiet” place and share constructive feedback. • Did you keep the players safe? • Did your Team communicate well? • Were your calls consistent? • In the event of an ejection(s) / fight: • Reach alignment on the sequence of events and details. • Contact your assigner immediately after the game. • Confirm who will fill out and submit the PIAA paperwork.
