Early Season Tune Up

A group of newer DBOA officials gathered at Richcraft Sensplex this week for some advanced instruction from some of the HEO’s Officiating Program’s top brass.  Classroom sessions included technical details surrounding the role of both linesmen and referees, communication with your partners on the ice, rule emphasis, and game management.  The on ice portion involved some skating drills followed by a demonstration and discussion on how to best communicate with the player’s bench (calmly and respectfully), while also preparing officials for how to address any verbal abuse and or disrespectful actions from bench staff.
