Referee Program n n n Largest class of 1 st year refs in many years. Very popular program with GF Families. 1 st job for most. Training for refs commenced at the beginning of October and continues through Thanksgiving and beyond. “Classroom” and “on-court training” Top Coaches Complaints: Lack of calls made for contact fouls, rules knowledge, “swallowing” the whistle. Top Ref Complaints: Coaches “helping” the ref make calls, uncontrolled parents, rules knowledge Take the “ref exam” and test your rules knowledge! Feedback (good or bad) is highly encouraged! But please give us feedback that is “teachable”.
Referee Program Rule Reminders n n n Two or more players CANNOT defend the ball or player unless they are driving to the basket in boys grade 5 and below. Refs are being instructed to call this. Please never confront on court ref with “comments” or questions. The desk ref is there to help during stoppages of play only. Understand the GFHoops local rules and create a substitution flow chart for your game, particularly if you have an 8 player team
Phil Simonides Director of Coaches
Coaches You Are The Key to Our Success! n n n n Model Positive Behavior –Winning & Losing Teach Children the Game Spread The Playing Time Manage Your Parents* Respect Referees Youth Coaches Have Fun!
Coaches Issues From Prior Years DON’TS n Flagrant Fouls. n Running up the score n Too many “coaches” yelling during game n Harsh coaching n Improper substitutions n Abusive behavior from coaches to refs n Coaches taunting each other n Gaming the system DOs: n 5 pass rule, no press, no 3 pointers, change player positions n At most two assistants n Be positive AND instructive n Have a playtime game plan n Control your players/yourself – no trash talking and unsportsmanlike conduct
Behavior Incidents Last Year n Issues q q Spoke to several coaches after games Behavior of assistant coaches deplorable in some instances Parents and coaches battling on some issues Harsh coaching styles addressed n Themes q q Parents thought refs weren’t calling games closely enough and it was too physical Parents thought their child was being called too frequently for fouling Coaches/parents calling fouls out too often Refs got intimidated – embarrassing to GF Hoops
Parent Messages n n n Goal: Model Positive Behavior for the kids. q This is more than basketball. q It's about teaching good sportsmanship. Zero Tolerance: for verbally abusing the refs. q They are an important part of our program. q Contact your coach or Neal Abravanel. . . don't yell at the refs. q Yelling raises the tension in the gyms and impacts the players very negatively. q Their play tends to get more physical and emotional and it makes the situation worse. Remember: Our refs are kids. q Think - about the impact of yelling at children in a public forum
Coach Messages n n n Same points as parents -- plus the following: You went to the Coaches meeting and know what we expect. You acknowledged Code of Conduct when you registered. You are the role model. q n You need to focus on positively coaching the kids, not arguing calls. Most parents spoken to acknowledged that they handled the situation poorly and were apologetic. q We had mixed results with the coaches.
VBD Test – Debbie Volpicelli Volunteer Building Directors n Coaches go to: http: //www. fairfaxcounty. gov/rec/team_sports/volbld_dir. htm q Create an account q Watch the video q Take the test on-line. q Certificates - sent via e-mail. (Certification good for 2 years) n Coaches – you are the face of the organization q Protect and enhance the GF Hoops reputation q The facilities we share must be treated with care and respect. q Leave GYMS in EQUAL to or BETTER shape than when you arrived.
