“Intervals and Time Outs: Enough to Communicate?”

‘How awesome are these shirts!’

Our friends at @redig24 had a cool digital session earlier this year with some tools to maximize the time we have during the time outs and intervals of the game, so we can improve our verbal communication with our teammates.

Emotional Control and Mistake Management with Orlando Varela #websession

As referees we can say, and the people in ancient Rome already knew: Errare Humanum Est. But as referees we have to be able to not let our performances suffer after mistakes or errors. I can remember a game a long time ago where I stepped in between to guards who went head to head as my collegue was reporting foul to the table. As I turned around the 2.14meters tall captain of the guests was down on the baseline. My refereecoach that game told me after that the performance lost almost 25%. Wish I had seen the following websession of REDIG24 before that game! Lees “Emotional Control and Mistake Management with Orlando Varela #websession” verder

How to activate your body! #websession

Sometimes we see refs reluctantly warming up before the games they are about to do. Two or three laps jogging and that’s it. Refereeing is, just like playing , an athletic event. Besides that: players take their sport seriously by warming up sometimes more than 40 minutes. What kind of impression are we as refs making if we warm up just a few minutes before the game and not even in the break between 2nd and 3rd quarter. Refs Evolving Digitally did a great session about activating your body before during and after the game. Let’s take this time-out a lot of us are having and get better in what we love doing! Eighty minutes well spent! Great job guys! Lees “How to activate your body! #websession” verder

Websession: Roberto Chiari about IOT

A few weeks ago we noticed that Individual officiating Techniques are not as widely known as we assumed. IOT is developed to help us as referees make better decisions on court, which will make our job even more fun to do! So let’s learn from the best! Mohammad Rahimy once again has Roberto Chiari , a two time olympic referee and very experienced referee instructor to share his knowledge about IOT.  It’s very worth watching!! Why not start improving your knowledge before the next game you are going to do!
