2 Objectives Identify responsibilities of dual system officials 4/15/2017ObjectivesIdentify responsibilities of dual system officialsPerform basic mechanics in prescribed mannerDescribe general patterns of movementDescribe major set positions usedIdentify responsibilities of Lead/Trail officialsThis set was developed to standardize the mechanics of dual officiating in high school soccer.The presentation of the set should enable each official to:- Identify the primary responsibilities of an official- Perform basic mechanics in the prescribed manner- Describe the general patterns of movement during the game- Describe the major set positions used on the field- Identify the responsibilities of the Lead and Trail officials
4 Head Referee Conducts pre-game conference(s) and instructions Make decisions on points not covered by RulesMatch authority on rules interpretation, equipment legalityWho’s the Head Referee?Planned dual will be designatedUnplanned dual? Higher ranking
5 Referee Team Pre-game Inspect field/players together Determine lead/trail directions (left or rt.)Decide touchline/goal line responsibilitiesReview proper mechanics/techniquesEmphasize eye contact; consult if neededSimultaneous whistle – defer to head refCoordination IssuesSubstitutionsInjuriesRestarts
6 Pre-game with Coaches Don’t “apologize” for doing a dual Don’t suggest match will be called differently or that team’s need to adjust for dualDO explain procedure if 3rd showsDO address subs “check-in”Do stress officials have equal authority on foul calls
7 Responsibility for Restart Whistle 4/15/2017Responsibility for Restart WhistleTrail whistles startLead whistles startIn making the call, the referee who SEES the violation blows to stop play. (click) - Exception… a whistle not needed to stop play ever time the ball goes out of touch. Only when needed to stop players if ball has left the field.For ceremonial restarts, kickoffs or after a substitution, play may not restart after a stoppage until a whistle sounds. At all other times, the offended team is permitted to take a quick restart.(Click) - When a restart whistle is required, the lead official will restart play… (click) except on kick-offs and goal kicks when the trail referee will sound the whistle.Kickoff(s)Drop Ball ?Goal KickThrow In (Trail side)Corner kickPenalty kickFree kickThrow In (Lead side)Subs – official responsible for restart whistles
8 Making the Call - Eye Contact Essential 4/15/2017Making the Call - Eye Contact EssentialThe referee who sees the violation whistles for stoppage and quickly deals with the offender if needed.It is essential that each official be in position to provide complete coverage of the field.Referee who SEES the violation, whistles
9 Out of bounds responsibility 4/15/2017Dual System of ControlEach official is responsible for calling the out-of-play on the “L” pattern indicated by the touch line and goal line markings.This will change if running opposite patterns due to sun, etc.Out of bounds responsibility
10 Adjust to flow – Lead Official keys on Lead Attacker 4/15/2017Keep play in between on the yard ropeAs both lead and trail move with the play, they adjust to the flow of play. Try to keep about yards from play, 40 yards apart. Box in play between them.Adjust to flow – Lead Official keys on Lead Attacker
11 4/15/2017No Touchline HuggingEach official will generally cover the green area during the course of a game. The pattern is NOT rigid but FLEXIBLE!Flexible Pattern – requires high work rate to stay close enough to play and still be able to cover the offside decision
12 Covering “coffin corner” 4/15/2017Covering “coffin corner”As the play moves toward the “Coffin” corner, the lead official moves in toward the play while watching for offside.The trail official moves down near the penalty area to insure proper coverage from the rear and opposite side of the field.Trail must press down with play. Lead is usually screened and must split his focus to determine offside.
13 Running off the field may be required 4/15/2017Running off the field may be requiredThe official may have to run near the touch line as required, or even leave the field altogether. Here, the lead is almost off or completely off the field.Notice the trail official has moved toward the center of the field since play is so far to the other side and away from him.Just like diagonal system? Lead referee should be closer to the goal than the thrower, in order to cover goal scored as well as offside.
14 4/15/2017Play near the goalLeft side- As play reaches the goal area, lead should be near the goal line, possibly off the field- Trail should be at or near the penalty areaRight Side- As the ball remains in play, lead should be at goal line, in position to determine a goal, but OUT OF THE WAY!- The trail should move out as play develops into the penalty areaLead referee across the goal may be necessary, but may also compromise the offside decision.

22 Dropped Ball Trail official controls drop ball 4/15/2017Dropped BallTrail official controls drop ballLead official anticipates playDirection of play could change quicklyOfficials need to be ready to adjust quicklyDrop Ball- Trail official controls drop ball- Lead official anticipates play- Direction of play could change quickly- Officials need to be ready to adjust quickly(NFHS Rules seem toIndicate that there is aRestart whistle onDropped balls??? Don’t!)
24 Remember “Dual in Dual System” is NOT spelled “duel” As always, teamwork is the key to success.
