3 Referees Code Of Conduct As a referee in the sport of lacrosse, you have a unique and important role to play. Your conduct can impact not only the play of an individual game but it can promote the respect and growth of the game itself. Review the Code of Conduct that has been handed out. You will be held to higher standard of conduct both on and off the field. Always conduct yourself in a professional manner Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

4 Attitude & Composure The referee ensures the rules of the game are applied equally and fairly. They do not make the rules, but merely enforce the rules. Proper attitude and composure is a key attribute of any official. Projecting a calm and competent attitude will carry outward to everyone else involved. Problems are solved by people who can keep their head in a heated situation Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

5 Attitude & Composure As the “third team”, we must always work together as a crew. Be supportive of your partner(s). Similar to players and coaches, we need to strive to continuously improve as referees: Read the rule book often Consult your manuals often Look at what other referees do well that could help you become a better referee Talk to each other, and share your experiences both positive, and negative Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

6 Attitude & Composure Striving to continuously improve (cont.) Seek feedback from senior referees and supervisors. Review your own performance and set goals for yourself. Work with different officials. The more diverse the group the better. Be willing to travel to tournaments or games outside of your regular area. Often there is a higher level of competition Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

7 Attitude & Composure When dealing with players & teams, sometimes you can make the situation worse by: Being overly officious, too strict, or cocky. Being indecisive or slow to make a decision or a call. Trying to ‘even up’ the calls. Provoking the player or coach – The all too familiar – “ Do you want another one?” Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

8 Attitude & Composure Frequently Asked Questions Q I think I may have made an incorrect call, what should I do to correct it? A The rule book states that referees should make any corrections immediately. Discuss the call with your partner, admit to the coaches or the captains of the teams that an error has been made, and then correct it immediately. The key is effective communication, diplomacy and respect. Don’t hesitate to call a time out and speak with the coaches to clarify a problem Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

9 Attitude & Composure Frequently Asked Questions Q The coach is questioning a call, and wants me to show him that rule in the rule book. What should I do? A Never bring your rule book out during the game. Let the coach know that you will be happy to discuss it after the game, but that you will be consistent throughout the game in your interpretation of the rule. Remember, you will win the argument with the coach, but overall you will lose (credibility) Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

10 Attitude & Composure Frequently Asked Questions Q The coach is not controlling his assistant coaches who are not conducting themselves appropriately. What should I do? A Warn Head Coach for first offense. For second offense call an unsportsmanlike conduct foul on the team Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

11 Attitude & Composure Frequently Asked Questions Q What if there is a problem with game fees or mileage? What should I do? A Do the game, then report the problem to your assignor or the RIC Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

12 Pre-Game and Post-Game Duties Both your pre and post game actions will reflect on your attitude and abilities. They illustrate your commitment to the today’s game(s). Your actions now will take away anyone's ability to say “I can’t believe that we are paying this person to be here!” This has as much to do with presentation and presence as it does with the rules. It not only gets you and you crew ready to go, but it also gets the teams out on the field on time and prepared to begin play Module #4 Philosophy - CLA

21 Post Game Duties At the end of the game, the officiating crew meets at center, to compare score cards. The entire crew watches as the teams shake hands to ensure there are no incidents that may need to be reported. The Head Referee reviews the game sheet for the following: Verify the score. Is the score correct compared to the Head Referee’s card? Any special situations or penalties are noted. Then the entire crew signs the game sheet.
