Referees and coaches

Last night we held our annual banquet. This isn't just for the referees and their spouses. We invite the coaches whose teams went to state, the coaches whose teams won our sportsmanship award (we submit ratings on the games throughout the season), and various others we honor, such as the AD who is retiring after 44 years.

In our area we don't have many of the problems we hear about in the big cities. We seem to have a relationship that I liken to the relationship in the old Warner Bros. cartoon with the sheep and the wolf.

Do any others of you have successful programs toward building good sportsmanship?

Rita

No, but we do have some coaches that remind me of cartoon characters.

Giving Back ...

Two sportsmanship awards, named in memory of two former assigners, one to a girls program, and one to a boys program. Voted on by all officials on our local board.

Scholarships are taken care of by the assigning of officials, at not cost, to a major holiday scholarship tournament.

We also work Special Olympics Unified Games, at no cost.

An award is presented by our assigner every year to an athletic director who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in regard to being cooperative with the assigner, and acting as a great host, or hostess, to officials at his, or her, school.

I believe that we are considering some type of an award to a great table crew. chseagle: Don't get your hopes up. It only in our little corner of Connecticut.
