MAKE A POSITIVE FIRST IMPRESSION WITH NEW COACHES
There are many
activities that are always part of sports contests regardless of the
type of sport, the equipment used, or in what venue the game occurs.
One of these activities is the traditional initial meeting between
the coach and the head official. The nature of the encounter can go a
long way in creating a positive relationship that lasts throughout an
entire season. When handled well, coaches will feel a sense of trust
for the officiating crew. When handled poorly, a long game can become
much longer, and a tough call can be tougher to defend.
