Working with young game officials/referees can be good for all involved. This gives our young players a chance to see the game from a different perspective. It also gives our coaches a chance to work with our young officials in helping teach them the game.
Some helpful tips :
Coaches, remember, we are working with young people. They can't see everything and occasionally miss a call. Patience. I'll say it again, patience. Tell them what they did well. Try to help them.
Referees, don't be afraid to take control of the game. You're the officiating body for the match. The whistle is your friend. Think about safety.
