Keeping focus

Everybody once in a while gets a game where the score will very soon be clear about who is going to win. Teams that have like 30 points in between them before halftime will sometimes lead to referee-teams losing focus. Hey, we are human! One of our coaches told us about his way to maintain focus if the difference is huge. Bert van Slooten: ‘ Whenever that happens I start focussing on the different seconds that are covered in the rules. We have three seconds, five seconds, eight seconds, and off course the 24 second shot clock. I train myself to focus on these parts of the rules to be very aware: how many seconds are remaining on the shot clock? That way your mind stays active and you will be more likely to stay in the game as a referee’
