  • We often start our pre-game crew meeting before meeting with the coaches.

  • This is not the time for the crew warm-up. Pre-game stretching should be done in the locker room.
  • Don’t stretch and run on the field.
  • When finished with pre-game duties, leave the field. We like to say, “Out of sight, out of mind”.
pre game duties20
PRE-GAME DUTIES
  • Prior to coin toss, LJ and BJ should get the choices that each coach wants. Do not let the game captains make a mistake.
  • Make sure each team is on the field in time for the National Anthem, mock coin toss, and kickoff.
  • Make sure officials are present if both teams use the same area to enter and leave the field.
pre game duties21
PRE-GAME DUTIES
  • Make sure the LJ and BJ stay between the teams if they have to enter or exit the field at the same location. Prime examples are Clear Creek District and Tully Stadiums.

game duties
GAME DUTIES

BALL HANDLING

game duties23
GAME DUTIES
  • Get the ball back in play and spotted so the R can make the ball ready in 12 to 14 seconds after the ball was dead.
  • Make all passes between officials short and underhanded.
  • Each official must know his throwing range.
game duties24
GAME DUTIES
  • Have a plan for when to change the ball and when not to.
  • For example, for a running play that ends outside the numbers, get the ball to the wing man so he can spot the ball at his feet. The wing man will get a new ball and relay it to the R or BJ to relay to the U.
game duties25
GAME DUTIES
  • U will make sure the ball is suitable for play. U must decide when a dry ball is needed. Have a signal so wingman will know a new ball is needed after the next play.
  • U to tell each center that he can request a new ball at any time, and that U will have a towel for him to dry his hands on.
game duties26
GAME DUTIES
  • Ball handling is a very important element in calling a good game.
  • The better your crew handles the ball, the better they will be perceived to be.
  • Make sure you do everything possible to keep the ball dry during inclement weather.
game duties27
GAME DUTIES
  • Instruct coaches, RBs, and WRs to hand the ball to an official and not to leave it on the ground during rainy weather.
  • U should cover ball with towel until the offense breaks the huddle, then set the ball down and move to his position.
  • Do the same for both teams.
game duties28
GAME DUTIES

ATTITUDE

game duties29
GAME DUTIES
  • Act like you want to be at this game and only at this game regardless of who are playing.
  • Our attitude is, “The most important game in the State of Texas is the game we are calling tonight”.
  • Be friendly to everyone you see from when you get out of your car until you leave the stadium.
game duties30
GAME DUTIES
  • Smile and speak to everyone you see. They could be the AD, maintenance man, or school board member.
  • When on the field before the game, be friendly to all coaches.
  • Tell them hello and good luck. Do not seek them out for conversation.
game duties31
GAME DUTIES
  • If they want to talk, be polite; but keep it short and sweet.
  • Do not have a lengthy or belly laughing conversations.
  • The other coaching staff will be watching your every move
  • You must treat both sides the same.
game duties32
GAME DUTIES
  • Always address any coach as Coach or Coach with his last name.
  • Never use his first name no matter how well you know the coach.
  • Do not smooze any coach before a game.
  • The best way to get another game from that team is to work a good game.
game duties34
GAME DUTIES
  • Always hustle, but never rush.
  • You can hustle effectively if you are in good physical condition.
  • You have to be as fresh in the 4th quarter as you were in the 1st quarter.
  • Many coaches have told us that officials that hustle is very important to them.
game duties35
GAME DUTIES
  • If you hustle and are in good shape, it is much easier to be in the proper position for each play so you can make a good call.
  • This also means you have to know your position mechanics well.
  • It also means you have to know where the other 4 men will be on each play.
good pregame topics
GOOD PREGAME TOPICS
  • Mechanics – each man discusses his position all types of plays.
  • Running game
  • Passing game
  • Kicking game
  • Overtime
  • Penalty Enforcement
penalty enforcement
PENALTY ENFORCEMENT
  • DO NOT RUSH PENALTY DECISION OR ENFORCMENT.
  • Do not let the players screw up a decision.
  • We don’t let the captains decide penalty acceptance/declination.
  • The wingman on the side the penalty decision rests will explain the options to the Head Coach.
penalty enforcement38
PENALTY ENFORCEMENT
  • An official not involved in the penalty should always cover the flag. This is usually the Back Judge or Wingman.
  • You need a plan for who will cover the flag, and who will keep players and coaches away from the Referee and the calling official(s).
penalty enforcement39
PENALTY ENFORCEMENT
  • The wingman will convey the decision to the Referee.
  • Do not rush the coach into a decision; allow him to talk to his assistant coaches.
  • After decision is made, Referee must let the Umpire know what the decision is. The Referee should tell him what the enforcement is. The Umpire should communicate his agreement/disagreement.
penalty enforcement40
PENALTY ENFORCEMENT
  • Referee will give the preliminary signal. He should clear himself of all players and officials.
  • Stop and collect your thoughts. Give good, crisp signals.
  • Umpire should not mark off the penalty until the Referee is finished with the preliminary signal.
penalty enforcement41
PENALTY ENFORCEMENT
  • Line Judge should stay at the enforcement spot until the enforcement is completed.
  • Head Linesman should move to the spot where the penalty leaves the ball.
  • The Umpire should confirm with HL that they both have the same spot.
  • Sixth Man must keep the down box at the previous spot until the penalty enforcement is complete.
treatment of players
TREATMENT OF PLAYERS
  • Always remember that the game is for the players.
  • Always treat them with respect. Never talk down to a player.
  • It is our responsibility to help each player have fun and enjoy the game as much as possible.
treatment of players43
TREATMENT OF PLAYERS
  • Remember that they love the game as much as you do.
  • Help make their memories of playing days as good as possible.
  • You should talk to the players. Don’t interfere with their game duties
  • Establish a rapport with key players on both sides of the ball.
treatment of players44
TREATMENT OF PLAYERS
  • The Referee should have a good relationship with the quarterback.
  • The Umpire should have a good relationship with the center and middle linebacker(s).
  • These are the players that will tell their coaches how the officials performed.
post game
POST GAME
  • Have a post-game meal so you can discuss the game especially any controversial plays or calls.
  • Don’t have these discussions at the stadium. You don’t always know who will be listening.
  • Implement changes from things learned during the game and discussed afterwards.
