Do Not Be THAT Coach - Referees and Laws of the Game
As soon as the whistle blows to start the game, does your personality change? Do you fly off the handle when the ref misses a call? Do your veins start to bulge when a 'clear' offside call is not called? Does the ref have to come over to tell you to calm down? At half time and full time instead of talking to your players, do you make a beeline for the ref to discuss certain calls he made?
Do you, your assistant and your sideline/parents yell things like "Come on Ref", "Call it both ways", "Where's the call"?
Do you blame the ref for games your team loses?
Click on the attachment below to read the excellent article "Referees and the Laws of the Game - An Introduction for Coaches". Please read this to better understand the relationship all coaches need to have with the referees.
Remember your game day responsibility consists purely of providing technical and tactical instruction from the confines of the technical area. As the head coach you are responsible for the behavior of yourself, your assistant(s) and your sideline.
