17 Dealing with irate fans What should you do in the event a spectator interferes with the conduct of a game or cause you to become distracted through continual, unrelenting verbal abuse?   immediately stop the action   report the spectator to the home team administration or the nearest uniformed security officer and ask that they be restrained or removed from the facility.   If the home team administration or uniformed security is unwilling or unable to comply and you don’t believe the game can be safely continued, you must declare the game ended at that point.   Under no circumstance should you ever confront, challenge, rebuke, or threaten a spectator, or make gestures of any kind toward a spectator before, during, or after a game ©

18 Dealing with irate fans 2014 © Do not attempt to “catch” or tackle an irate fan that runs into the playing area.

19 Injured Athlete 2014 ©

20 Injured Athlete   Your only role in dealing with athletic injuries is to stop play as soon as possible so that the injured athlete can receive attention as soon as possible.   Coaches and medical personnel should be allowed to enter the field and   You should be given unlimited time to evaluate an injury and give emergency care. (I verbally tell the trainer, “Take all the time you need.”)   Do not request that coaches move an injured athlete.   Do not offer medical advice or take any action to manage or treat any injury ©

21 Disqualifying a Player   Call timeout. Stop play.   Do not hurry. Be professional, courteous and assertive.   Request the athlete to accompany you to his team bench.   Go directly to the head coach and clearly notify him that the player is ejected.   Provide both the athlete and the head coach with a statement of explanation as to why the athlete is disqualified.   Do not, however, debate the issue with either the athlete or the coach.   Go to the opposing head coach and notify him that the athlete has been disqualified and provide him with the exact same statement of explanation.   Resume the contest.   After the game, report the disqualification to the FHSAA ©
