Hello all, welcome to week 2. One of the things that we are working on is improving the quality of our officiating. Please begin to work on your skills. Work on perfecting your signals. When you blow your whistle know are you calling a foul or a violation. Get your arm straight up; closed fist for a foul and open hand for a violation. Blow your whistle and make your signals with confidence.  Hustle to a clear area to report your foul. You don't have to go all the way to the table. Come to a complete stop, stand up straight, speak in a clear voice. Foul, white, 23(signaling with your hand), 2 shots, 1 and 1. When you blow your whistle, you are communicating with your partner first. Whistle, violation or foul, then let your partner know, if there will be shots or where to take the ball; end line, sideline etc. Slow down a bit, when you blow a foul, take a moment to make sure you have the color and number of who committed the foul before you go to report.
Be on time and in uniform. No collar shirt, black shorts and black court shoes.  Pregame your coaches. Let them know what your expect. Only head coach stands, no parents or non coaching personnel on the bench, no coaching on the floor or at the table, no substitutes until the official calls them on the court (especially establish this at the upper levels). Manage your coaches! Create a consistency week to week, crew to crew. Do not give warning after warning; if the coach continues to disregard you or display unacceptable behavior, if necessary manage him/her with a technical. Once a technical is issued, he has to sit the remainder of the game. Always be professional and respectful.  Officials make sure the table personnel know what they are or should be doing. Fouls are cleared/zeroed and you start all over in the 2nd half. 
Crews you should be talking to each other about the game, calls, violations. New officials ask question, veterans help the newer officials. Pick something you want to work on for the game and work on it. We will be announcing a training game weekly. Invest in yourself, go and observe if you are not on the schedule. Practice your signals in the mirror at home, it helps to have crisp signals.
Be consistent, be professional!
Reminder: If you haven't submitted your W9, please get it in.  NO W9, NO CHECK!
