Can we start a survey on the topic instead of this thread?

Will you delete posts which contest whether or not "argument" & "debate" are interchangeable terms in this venue???

My advice to the original poster would be that if a member of the camp staff takes issue with the use of the words "ladies" and/or "gentlemen" that you remove those words from your vocabulary for the remainder of the camp.

I have never experienced being told the term "ladies" is offensive. However, if a camp clinician tells me it is, than it is.

I have experienced female coaches telling female players to play "man" defense, though.

Hey Lady! Watch where you're driving!!!!

Back to the original topic. I hope to see at least one of my kids work towards the college level. The original poster had five years of experience and was invited to a college camp; do most of these camps require invitations? I'm aware of camps specifically for HS and camps that touch on both; if this is a camp for JUCO ball and it is invitational - is that unusual? can you not be invited to referee at that level through one of the camps that you register for without an invitation?

Maybe the mods are still at Mass at Our Lady of the Most Sacred Whatever Church.

How about.... "line up and don't move, ladies. Pretend you're married."?
