1 Updates, Refresher and Reminders September 13, 2012 1

2 Rules update / NJSIAA clarifications  May a goalkeeper wear non-prescription sunglasses?  Ruling – YES, so long as they are not for adornment. 2

3 Rules update / clarifications  A girls JV player is too large to comfortably wear a uniform jersey from her team’s set. May she wear a slightly different one borrowed from the boys team? Ruling – YES. 3

4 Rules update / clarifications  May a player have extra padding / tape on the outside of his shoe / sock?  Ruling – YES, provided it does not present a danger to the wearer or any opponent (i.e. nothing ‘hard’ inside) 4

5 Rules refresher – restarts after an injury The BIG question - Why was the play stopped?  Ball had already crossed a boundary line (touchline, goal line).  Restart with throw-in, goal kick, corner kick, kick off, as appropriate.  Play was stopped for a foul  Restart with IFK or DFK, as per the foul  Play was stopped solely due to the injury  No clear possession – drop ball  Clear possession – IFK  WHERE THE BALL WAS, not at the spot of the injury 5

6 Rules refresher - Offside  A player in an offside position is not penalized when receiving the ball directly from a throw-in or corner kick.  A deflection off of a defender does NOT create an infringement by the attacker  A deflection off of a teammate DOES create an infringement  A player in an offside position SHOULD BE penalized when they become involved in play and gain an advantage from being in the offside position. 6

7 Rules refresher – Kicks from the mark  During the regular season, a match that is tied at the end of two 10 minute overtime periods remains a tie. No kicks.  However, if a tournament (Coaches Cup) has received permission from NJSIAA to use kicks to determine who will advance, then conduct the kicks! 7

8 Reminder – Conflicts of Interest  If you are “not sure” if a conflict of interest exists, then you have one.  Situations to avoid:  Son or daughter on the team  Son or daughter playing different level for the school/school district  You work for the district  Working varsity matches within the Conference your son/daughter plays  You have an “axe to grind” with a coach  Others? 8

9 Reminder – Respect is a Two-Way Street  How can you expect respect when you do not give it?  “Young lady” or “Young man” versus  Ma’am or Sir (preferred)  Remember, you are facilitating THEIR game, they are not playing in YOUR game 9

10 Reminder – Know your limits  Are you physically able to run two tough matches in one day?  Are you physically able to run ONE tough match?  Are you ready for the “game of the week”?  Be honest with yourself and with our assignors. Taking games that are beyond your capability is a dis-service to your employer (the school), the players, and the sport. And, it’s not much fun! 10

11 Team Work and Communication  There are three teams on the field – two opponents and the officiating crew.  Your partner is your ONLY friend for the match.  So, when a Coach complains about a call or is pleading for a foul call:  DO NOT “sell out” your partner  “That’s HIS call” or “that’s NOT my call”  These imply you are not a team, that your partner is incompetent, that they are not willing to make the difficult call.  Proper responses could be:  “Coach, we will keep an eye on it”  “Coach, I heard you, that’s enough” 11

12 Penalty Kicks Revisited 12 L T “When all about you are losing their heads …” Stop the clock, take a breath and SLOW DOWN. Communication is key. Lead – whistles the restart; observes GK infringement; ball crossing the end line Trail – ensures players are 10 yds. from ball; observes for improper kick/stopping; observes encroachment Make eye contact with your partner before every restart

13 Is it Foul? Or is it Nothing? 13

14 Question of the Day  What is the restart when a large bird lands on the pitch, opts to die and play has to be suspended?  Stoppage of play for an inadvertent whistle, interference by an outside agent …  … restart with IFK for team in possession at the time of the stoppage …  … restart with drop ball if neither team is in possession at the time of the stoppage …  … restart at the spot the ball was located at the time of the stoppage – unless the ball was in the goal area. 14

15 Reminder – Future SJSOA Meetings  Monday October 1, 2012  Tuesday October 23, 2012  End of Season Banquet – Monday November 5, 2012 15
