But why blow the whistle? I ask kids all the time are you ok? Do you want to go out? A lot of times they say theyre ok and we keep going with no interruption. While by rule you were correct--

Remember the more we keep the game going with out a whistle the better off we are
Agree- certainly for anything above JV.

If he's just limping, it's obvious there's no serious injury involved. If he's on the offensive team, he has the option to call a TO. That will stop the play-- and if he goes off, his team won't be charged with the TO anyway. If he's on the defensive team, he's trailing a 5 on 4-albeit maybe a slow one. Either way, you've got plenty of time to ask him if he's OK.

If you know it's minor, let the player make the decision,not you.
