state coaches meetings

Soon my state will be holding their annual state basketball coaches meetings. They bring in the D1 basketball coaches and have a clinic and such. Has anyone ever attended one of these as an official? I was thinking of contacting the coaches association to see if they would mind some of us sitting in. It has been a while since many of us have been around a practice and I think it would be interesting and helpful to see how the game is being taught.

We usualyy get invited

Our Board usually gets invited to the regional Conference coaches meeting. It is usually our rules interpreter who goes and tells the coaches about the rule changes, how we are going to call them, and what to expect regarding POE this year.

We cannot go if we are not invited but I think it is very important that there is a relationship between the referees and coaches off the court because it can only improve the on court game especially when the coaches know why we call certain things and how exactly we interpret the rules.

I have never heard of such a meeting. I am sure there are similar meetings out here, but none that officials are made aware of.

Peace

I am from Ontario and the meeting I was refering to is our regional HS Leagues coaches meeting. They have one before every season to talk about schedule, tournaments, RULES, safety and so on. I have never heard of a Provincial/State coaches meeting. I mean there are coaches clinics and all but There is no reason to really have a state meeting since the coaches dont play each other until the state tournament anyways.

Junker - is this a meeting where the coaches can learn game plays, techniques, practice schedules, ideas and such from D-1 coaches? If so, it's kind of a neat idea for the state to put on such a thing for the coaches.

It would be interesting to see if they teach a section on "How to Win Friends and Influence Referees".

We don't get invited, but the local news and the colleges let it be known that they are having their meeting. The crews of officials I run around with have talked about it in the past and thought it would be interesting to see how the game is being taught in practice. It sounds like the coaches bring their teams and show drills, plays and such. We are not as the basketball coaches association is separate from the state athletic association.

Our coaches come to our rules meeting as well, and obviously they pay close attention because they NEVER ask a question about something new. The meeting I'm talking about is more of a coach's clinic where they learn plays, drills and such.
