1 New Officials Training Day 3
2 Rule Changes Allows either an X or a 4-inch contrasting color square to be used as the location for the faceoff and designates that faceoff area as the center. Allows the use of a lime-green ball and stipulates that a white ball shall be used unless both coaches agree to use one of the other allowed colors. Stipulates the maximum dimension of a ball stop if a player chooses to use one. Revises the maximum length of hanging strings or leathers from 6 to 2 inches. Specifies that a protective cup is recommended for all players. Stipulates that the home team must provide a scorebook, a timing device, and a table in addition to a working horn.
3 Rule Changes Allows officials to wear black shorts instead of white shorts and specifies that all officials working a game are to be dressed the same. Specifies that the official shall vary the cadence of sounding the whistle for each faceoff. Specifies the penalty for deliberately using the hands to fingers to play the ball and for grabbing the opponents crosse during a faceoff. Revises the requirement for advancing the ball into the goal area. Revises the penalty for hits to head/neck.
4 Rule Changes Adds a requirement that a team awarded possession of the ball must pick up the ball and move to the position of the restart within five seconds of when the officials are ready to restart play. Allows the coach or a player to leave bench/coaches area and enter the table area to exchange a crosse or to seek information from the timer or scorekeeper. Revises the location of the restart following simultaneous fouls with both teams serving penalty time. Clarifies the procedure for inadvertent whistles regarding teams with possession or entitled to possession.

6 RULE 7 Penalty Enforcement
7 Penalty Enforcement Foul Situations For loose-ball technical fouls (and also for most goalie interference and crease violation fouls even if the ball is not loose), you will either employ the play-on technique or sound the whistle immediately. For a foul by the team in possession, or for any loose-ball personal foul, blow your whistle immediately.

10 Penalty Enforcement Making and Reporting the Call Blow your whistle Make sure there isnt any dead-ball residue after the play. Check for flags from your partner. Inform your partner of your call. Determine if same foul or two fouls. Trail Position yourself: Facing the table with an unobstructed view. Erect and stationary. Signal the penalty. Be big, loud, and clear. Appear detached – dont be angry! Make sure penalized player is back from sideline, kneeling by table, with helmet on.
11 Penalty Reporting Trail - CNOTE Face the table and announce the following: C - The uniform color of the offending player. Point to team. N - The number of offending player (and signal the number with your hands). O - The offense (foul) the player committed (give signal). T - The time to be served (30 seconds, 1 to 3 minutes). E – Explanation if necessary If the penalty is Non-releasable (Full Time, Locked) Good to mention the game time when to release the penalty & if it might carry over. Who will have possession and where the ball will restart (e.g., White ball, free clear; White ball, in the alley) BluePush 30 seconds White ballTwoFour
12 Penalty Reporting Lead Check with or report to Trail on penalty Set the field Get ball to restart spot. Restart at spot, in Trails alley, at top of corner box, or Free clear Restart on endline if penalty occurs after ball crosses endline Count players. This is critical! Inform Goalie of restart spot & penalty situation (e.g. Youre down 1 for 1 minute. The ball is top left.)
13 L T flag down Lead gets signal from Trail, checks activity of players, then get the ball ready for play. Trail calls out flag down, stops play at appropriate time, tells his partner what the call is, then gets out in open and relays call to table.

21 L T Lead and Trail Positions Settled Situation
22 Positioning Settled Situations - Lead Has his goal as his primary responsibility. Try not to move off the goal line extended (GLE) unless: there is a contested play near the end line or must move to get a better angle on the play. Move in and out with ball. Be as close to the crease as possible without interfering with play. Do not allow players to get behind you. Has end line responsibility on all shots (chase shots to the end line!). Return to GLE before whistling ball into play.
23 Positioning Settled Situations - Trail Watch for offsides. Watch action in his area. Report fouls to the table. Help with crease violations. Has most restarts. Watches the shooter & passer for a late hit. Always know shooters number.

25 ADAD L T T L Lead and Trail Positions Contested Loose Ball Near the End Line
26 Here are the key places you cant go wrong on the field with two man mechanics. Key Places to Go Settled Situation Trail: On offense: (1) If the ball is in possession, go to the corner of the restraining box. (2) If the ball is loose, go to the junction of the midfield line and the sideline. Lead: On offense: (3) If the ball is loose or in possession of the offense, go to the goal line extended. (4) If there is a shot, chase it to the end line.
27 Key Places to Go Transition 5 6 When the ball is being cleared: Lead: (5) If you are the new Lead, stay at least one full zone ahead of the ball (so if the ball is in the Defensive Zone, you are at midfield; if its in Zone 3, you are at the top of the box, and if the ball is in Zone 4, you are on the goal line extended). Trail: (6) If you are the new Trail, stay even with the ball, whether it is loose or in possession of the clearing team.
28 Transition Trail becomes Lead Lead becomes Trail Goalie makes the save Break to midline; see the ball, quick check for offsides GLE responsibility- get there! First 10 second count into attack box (Zone 4) Sprint to endline if contested shot; return to GLE at restart Move in and out (crease) Sideline responsibilities Goalie makes the save Goalie 4 second count; start the 20 second timer Stay behind the ball; you ultimately have off-sides 60 yard eyes- find the shooter Jog to the restraining line Sideline responsibilities Stay with ball if ball clears along your sideline

66 Conflict Resolution Communication Communicating with coaches Ignore statements Answer questions Dont explain every call, explain unusual calls Get information for them Be polite and respectful! Maintain composure Communicating with players Encourage sportsmanship Talk them out of fouls Inform the goalie of the penalty and restart situation Briefly explain the call or rule
67 In cases of poor conduct, officials generally follow an escalating progression up The Ladder. 1. Start with a verbal warning, 2. followed by a conduct foul when the offending team has possession, 3. then by a time-serving conduct foul, 4. then a 1- to 3-minute unsportsmanlike conduct, and 5. finally by a flagrant misconduct expulsion foul. Depending on the severity of the foul and what preceded it, steps in this progression may be repeated or skipped. Handling a Rowdy Coach
68 Conflict Resolution Communication Referee: Thats it! One more word and Im throwing the flag! Coach: Can you penalize me for what Im thinking? Referee: No Coach: Good, cause I think youre horse---- John Gagliardi St. Johns University
69 Conflict resolution Recognize the conflict Diffusing the time bomb - how is it done? Sharpen your skills - what skills are needed?
70 What is conflict? Direct opposition, a clash or disagreement between people Conflicts are experienced at home, work, social recreation and officiating a contest As long as you have people dealing with people, making decisions or meeting deadlines - you will have conflict
71 What Types of Conflict? Pre-existing (carry over from previous contest) Spontaneous Reaction - reaction in a critical time in the contest Cumulative Response - series of calls or bad breaks that do not favor one team
72 Resolving conflict For years people in authority just told others what to do Now, people want to be heard and have a say in what is happening Therefore, communication becomes very important in resolving conflict Approach the conflict collaboratively - work with coaches and/or your partner(s) Simple communication is at the heart of conflict resolution With every conflict - its a matter of listening and seeking to understand the problem Must be done within the framework of the contest
73 Levels of conflict Informal - more often handled quickly, less noticeable by others - quick comments to coaches and participants Formal - needs more attention more skills necessary to resolve or understand what the coach, player or official has heard or seen
74 Key components in resolving conflict Great listening skills Flexibility Willingness to change Agree to disagree
75 Listening skills Maintain eye contact Do not interrupt - let them finish Good posture - maintain a non-threatening position Mentally rehearse situations you might become emotional in
76 Flexibility Be able to adjust to any situation Do not try to handle the situation alone - use your partner(s) Understand you are not going to please everyone - agree to disagree - this is a two way street, but the official has final say
77 Willingness to change Get the call right - use your partner(s) If change is necessary - make the change Support your partner(s) - you are a team Understand the psychology of coaches and what motivates them - communicate with them - know your coach
78 Defusing the situation Informal conflicts: Normal contest situations will not be stopped Use visual acknowledgment with coach or participants Direct eye contact or use caution sign. Use short verbal explanation I hear you, I will watch for that I saw it differently than that Use humor only when appropriate - timing is of the utmost importance with humor Most of all - know your audience
79 Formal conflict Contest will temporarily be stopped You will be directly confronted by the coach. You must evaluate coachs degree of intensity. Listen, be flexible, evaluate the situation and make change if necessary Help your partner with positive information - let partner make the call Defuse the situation - do not abuse it - get everyone calmed down if possible Establish your comfort zone and avoid letting a coach into your zone of comfort Do not lose your composure - this is inexcusable
80 Formal conflict Always display proper physical demeanor Good eye contact Proper posture Listen rather than challenge Give quick precise explanation and move forward Close the situation as rapidly as possible You can use the following: Coach, I saw it differently than that We need to get back to the contest Remember defuse rather than abuse
81 Formal conflict If conflict continues, give them one last formal warning If conflict continues, administer the appropriate penalty and restart the contest as soon as possible Serve as buffer for your partner
82 Necessary change If the official is in error, make the necessary change Explain to the opposing coach and captain(s) the situation and the change Get the contest started as quickly as possible
83 Review Keep ones composure Evaluate the conflict Establish your comfort zone Must have good listening skills, be flexible and a willingness to change if wrong Use simple communication to keep a situation from escalating Review concerns to see if change is necessary Use your partner(s) as much as possible Approach a problem collaboratively Administer penalty if necessary - get contest started as soon as possible
