North Texas Announcement on Referees for Spectators

Jun 22, 2015

We Need Your Help!!! The average age of a referee is 16 They can start as young as 12 We lose 40-45% of all newly registered referees before their first season is over HELP US KEEP THE YOUNG REFEREES IN THE PROGRAM R-Respect the young referee E-Encourage them with some praise F-Forgive them if they get a call(s) wrong E-Embolden them by thanking them R-Remain kind if you think a call is incorrect E-Elevate them with a positive comment E-Enjoy the game You wouldn’t want an adult yelling at your child. Every referee has attended a referee clinic, passed the test, received their badge and is excited to get started. They will make mistakes and that’s OK. Help us change the negative statistic of 40-45% by leaving a positive footprint at every game you watch. Thank you-North Texas Referees
