2016 ends Saturday night with Colorado snow, referees are still smiling!

Assignments are made to include as many referees as possible to gain experience from the mentoring, as well as, keeping in mind what is best for every game.  While it is an early season event, the players are showcasing their talent in front of college coaches, and you are too.  We all need to be “on top” of our game, and provide the players with our best effort.  All of us must come to the fields fully prepared, open to feedback from mentors, fellow officials, instructors, and assignors.  Come with an open mind to gaining something from the event to make you a better referee.  We all learn from every game, being a referee is an ongoing learning process, whether you are new to the job or a FIFA referee you must be open to feedback from others.  Approach every game assignment with the idea this is the “players World Cup” referees cannot think that we are “above the game” it is not about us, we must always want to improve and strive to give every game the best.

Tournament Preparation

2014 WAFC Showcase & RTS (114 of 249)

Yes, this is a January tournament in Colorado which means winter and you never know what Mother Nature may have in store for us.  As referees plan for this event be sure you have:
Warm/winter gear.  Referee warm gear must be black.  Solid black pants, beanie hats, gloves, head bands are all acceptable.  The key is BLACK!  

Warm gear can be layered, but your referee jersey must be visible as the top layer.

Plan accordingly for your needs.  Pack water, snacks, and extra layers to keep yourself comfortable.  In seven years we have never cancelled a game, we dress warm!
