Yesterday we were sent an amazing clip by our follower Robin Petrak. See down below for the clip of his game. We put it in our instagram stories with the question: is it a charge or a block? And the numbers went mad. From majority for blocking to majority for charge to 50-50 and 57-43 for blocking as it now.
It showed us once again the importance of checking clips and talking about them with your partner, because you don’t want to be in a game where you call the block, and your partner calls the charge or vice versa. A lot of followers reached out to us and told us it cannot be a charge, for the defender is in the no-charge zone. Lees “About the no charge zone …” verder
Individual Officiating Techniques (IOT) is the most important foundation for either 2 Person Officiating (2PO) or 3 Person Officiating (3PO). It is evident that in the past 15 years there has been a heavy focus
on 3PO (namely for the mechanical movements of the referees on the floor). This has led to a lack of knowledge in how to actually referee individual play phases in the game – this being the fundamental
skills that referees need to possess in order to process and facilitate the correct decision. These are inherent skills of IOT and are similarly relevant to both 2PO and 3PO. Lees “IOT FUNDAMENTALS” verder

We cannot stress enough that it is important to understand what’s happening on court. The good thing with clips is that you can play them over and over to get them in your system. This video from the Italian Federation is very useful, even if you don’t speak the language. We have several Italian followers so it is with great pleasure that we salute the makers of this video.
