As a middle school coach myself, I would say that I like what the official did. "Working the refs" is completely inappropriate at this level. It sets a VERY BAD EXAMPLE for the kids, and it...

Like the others have said, lots of water. Sports drinks (not fruit juice) is also pretty useful, particularly 1 hour before the game 1/2 hour after the game. You want to keep your blood volume up...
