KRW Fall Invitational Tournament – Oct 3-5

Please review both the “Master Schedule” for your overall schedule and the individual game assignment links below.  Make sure you are not assigned to a “conflict” game involving your family, your coach, etc.   If you are please let me know ASAP so that we can switch you to another field.

Please confirm your games no later than Wednesday night with an e-mail to mark.bernat@gmail.com

This season we turned away over 20 referees.  Many first year or inexperienced referees were turned away.  If you are a first year referee or asked for “AR only” assignments and were still assigned games then you are one of the lucky ones and I suggest that you work very hard to prove us correct in selecting you.   This tournament continues to be focused around a top level referee crew as a whole.   We return multiple State Youth Referee of the Year winners, multiple referees who have been chosen to represent Kansas at State Cup, Youth Regionals and National Presidents Cup and other recognition.   If you are lucky enough to be working with one of these top referees, make sure that you learn as much as possible.  Take advantage of this opportunity.

We also have former and current senior referees who will be mentoring throughout the tournament.   The “field marshals “in the tournament are all former senior referees who will be watching your games and providing tips to help you improve.  We will also have state referee committee representatives on hand to do evaluations and mentoring.   If you would like a developmental assessment on any match, please contact Mark ASAP and we’ll try to make that happen.

Season Wrap Up

Thank you to everyone for your hard work this season.   I know I am sometimes very harsh about responsibility, etc.  and while I really do feel very strongly about these issues, it in no way takes away from the fact that you are doing a tough job, in tough circumstances.   I appreciate each and every one of you.

Special thanks to those of you who work as mentors and help the younger referees.

Have a great time working the Mel Hambelton Cup (contact Vic Boydo for assignment).

See you next fall!!   Watch your e-mail for referee information about certifications etc for the summer.

Responsibilities, Communication and Doing your Job

As a team, we had a disastrous weekend.

This has been repeated over and over and over. It has been brought up in league meetings (but did you go to those)? It has been brought up in referee classes (but were you listening)? It has been sent out in e-mails (do you read those)? Continue reading

Signup for Mark’s E-mail Distribution List

Even though the new website technically supports e-mail distribution…we have historically used an e-mail distribution list signup that allows you to signup from as many e-mail addresses as you want (work, home, parents, etc).

Most information is posted on the website – but we often have “immediate” info that needs to go out (need a referee for a game that day, etc)….this information is put first on the e-mail distribution list.

You can signup (or cancel your subscription) to the list at this link:   E-mail Distribution List
