Be the Referee: Communication
February 7, 2019
This week, MHSAA officials coordinator Sam Davis discusses the mission of the Basketball Officials & Coaches Communication Committee.
Be The Referee is a series of short messages designed to help educate people on the rules of different sports, to help them better understand the art of officiating, and to recruit officials.
Below is this week's segment – Coach/Official Communication - Listen
One sport that works hard to build bridges between coaches and officials is basketball. For over 15 years, the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan has worked with the MHSAA, the Michigan Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association and local high school officials associations across the state in a joint effort called the Basketball Officials and Coaches Communication Committee.
In short, this committee stresses sportsmanship, professionalism and communication on other basketball topics in an effort to promote better understanding of each other’s roles and the game itself. The end goal is for all parties to create the best possible environment for our kids in which to play basketball.
