Training - Education - Development FOUL PLAY
TASK 1 Develop a process for effectively managing a foul play (dangerous play) incident. (10 mins.)
FOUL PLAY - PROCESS • Blow whistle with authority to immediately stop play and ENSURE other players do not become involved. • Ask players to move away – create space • Check whether assistant referee/s has/have flagged. If so, receive report (away from players)
Take time to collect your thoughts. (make your decision?) • Call out offending player/s (use jersey number and colour) and captain/s • Talk to the captain directly and base your comments on: Fact- What you have seen and/or what has been reported to you by the assistant referee/s. eg “Blue No.12 has punched a Red player. No. 12 is being sent off.” • Do not enter into further discussion
TASK 2 The game is developing considerable niggle and frustration. Identify options the referee can use to deal with this situation.
DEALING WITH ‘NIGGLE’ BUILD UP • Identify and deal with player/s responsible for incidents. • Work closely with captains so that they ‘own’ and address the problem. • When applicable manage incidents ‘on the run’. Non action may result in escalation. • Use assistant referees to help. • Act on any warnings or cautions previously issued.
