Websession 3po! #mechanics

One of the pro’s of 3 person officiating is that the crew has better angles on the play, and therefor can serve the game by making better decisions. If you ask us it’s not the only pro. Being on court with 2 friends is better than with just one ­čśë
Fiba Asia did a great session on mechanics in 3po. It’s not covering every single situation you will meet but it gives a nice start. If you really want to learn it i’d suggest you drop us an e-mail. We can notify you as soon as our eyeopener camp has a date for the upcoming edition. Lees “Websession 3po! #mechanics” verder

Emotional Control and Mistake Management with Orlando Varela #websession

As referees we can say, and the people in ancient Rome already knew: Errare Humanum Est. But as referees we have to be able to not let our performances suffer after mistakes or errors. I can remember a game a long time ago where I stepped in between to guards who went head to head as my collegue was reporting foul to the table. As I turned around the 2.14meters tall captain of the guests was down on the baseline. My refereecoach that game told me after that the performance lost almost 25%. Wish I had seen the following websession of REDIG24 before that game! Lees “Emotional Control and Mistake Management with Orlando Varela #websession” verder

How to activate your body! #websession

Sometimes we see refs reluctantly warming up before the games they are about to do. Two or three laps jogging and that’s it. Refereeing is, just like playing , an athletic event. Besides that: players take their sport seriously by warming up sometimes more than 40 minutes. What kind of impression are we as refs making if we warm up just a few minutes before the game and not even in the break between 2nd and 3rd quarter. Refs Evolving Digitally did a great session about activating your body before during and after the game. Let’s take this time-out a lot of us are having and get better in what we love doing! Eighty minutes well spent! Great job guys! Lees “How to activate your body! #websession” verder
