Training Video

Has anybody used this training video from USA Football?

NFL and NCAA officials Tony Michalek and Bill LeMonnier provide expert instruction and analysis in this comprehensive officiating DVD. Master proper officiating mechanics and rules, and make the game experience for youth and high school players, coaches, and parents a great one.

Length: 81 Minutes

I was wondering if it was any good and something to possibly use in our association for the newer officials. Or if anyone has any other great options, let me know.

Thanks for any input.

Its good but frankly some of the mechanics of the officials filmed (Michigan I believe) I found to be flawed. I don't know if they were aware their games were going to be used for this or they were collected and chosen later.

Considering there is little out there, commercially, in the way of training video, I would obtain it for your group.

I read that the Fed is planning on upgrading their web site to enhance issues such as this. Let us all hope. They should be leading the way.
