Cats and Dogs Living Together Key points - listen before responding - stay calm - enforce boundaries - show respect for both coaches - explain using referee language - when to use the technical foul
Cats and Dogs Living Together A simplified version: • Listen • Respond • Ignore • Warn • TCB – (Take Care of Business)
Cats and Dogs Living Together Listen before responding
Listen first! • Officials need to communicate with coaches when the situation arises. • We do not need to respond to all of their comments or answer all of their questions. • However, when we do feel it necessary to respond, we should listen first, then explain.
Cats and Dogs Living Together • Don’t think or act as if your uniform grants you immunity from having to take a little criticism. • “Plan on it!” • Effective officials know how much to take before responding. Knowing where to draw the line is critical.
Cats and Dogs Living Together • If a coach is on your back but not enough to warrant a penalty, stay away from him/her especially during timeouts and other breaks in the action. • Standing near an unhappy coach to show who is boss is an irritant. • Some officials develop irritating habits. Don’t be one of them!
Show Confidence • Arrogance has absolutely no place in officiating. • You want to exude confidence. Your presence alone should command & gather respect from the coaches. • Appearance, manner, and voice determine how you are accepted and respected. • Present a proper image.
Be Respectful • Treat both coaches with respect. • Answer reasonable questions. • Use referee language. • Be firm, but relaxed!
Choose Your Words Wisely • Do not bait nor threaten a coach: • If you do, that will put them on the defensive • More importantly, if you threaten, you will have placed yourself in an awkward position. • If you judge that a situation is serious enough to warrant a threat, then it’s serious enough to penalize without invoking a threat.
Stay Cool • Establish a calm demeanor • Coaches can spot a nervous, edgy official. • Pacing or displaying a wide range of inappropriate emotions prior to or during a contest will make you appear to be vulnerable to the pressure.
Coach Responses • We do better when we talk softer than the voice volume of the coach. • It is also okay to say “Coach, hold on” or “I will get back to you” or “Coach, she/he got a good look at that play”. • Or, perhaps the courage to say “Coach, I missed it” (but not too many times).
Coach Responses Ask experienced members. Examples: • “Coach, I hear you.” • “We’ll watch for that. ” • “He/she had a good look at that play.” • “Didn’t see it that way, Coach.” • “I will listen to you, but you need to get back in the coaches box.”
Coach Responses • “I hear you but we are moving on.” • “Not every play.” • “Enough.” - may need to use stop signal. • “Coach, I will get back to you” • “Coach, we missed it”
Enforce! TCB! • Use technical foul when appropriate
Cats and Dogs Living Together • What do coaches expect? - Coaches are always worried the other coach is getting the edge with the referees. Make sure you show both coaches all night that no one has the edge.
What Coaches Expect • Coaches want referees to show that they are human and not afraid to say they did not see it from their standpoint. • Coaches always want to feel that their point is being looked at in a FAIR way. Even and Fair!
What Coaches Expect • Want officials to keep the dialogue going throughout the game, and not just when contesting a call.
Cats and Dogs Living Together Summary Tips • listen before responding • stay calm • enforce boundaries • show respect for both coaches • explain using referee language • use technical foul when appropriate
