Characteristics of a Mentor

    decision making)
  • Is observant

Characteristics of a Mentor (contd)

9
When To Mentor
  • Before the game
  • 1. ensure that the mentoree is familiar with
    his/her pre-game responsibilities, e.g.
  • confirm that the field and goal posts are in safe
    condition
  • check on the players (uniforms, jewelry, glasses,
    etc.)
  • obtain game balls and arrange for collection of
    game sheets and fees

10
Before the Game (contd)
  • Ensure that the mentoree is professionally
    dressed.
  • Carry out the pre-game instructions or listen to
    the mentorees pre-game instructions
  • Encourage questions from the referee team prior
    to the coin toss

11
At Half Time
  • Choose one, or at the most two, points which you
    would like the referee to focus on in the second
    half. For example ask the referee to try to make
    eye contact with the referee crew on every
    stoppage in play, or to keep the ball between
    him/her and the near assistant referee.
  • Dont forget to tell the referee what he/she has
    done well.

12
After the Game
  • Review the completed mentor form report with the
    mentoree there should be more strong points
    than recommendations for improvement, in order to
    encourage skill development
  • Give the mentoree a copy of the report, or e-mail
    the strong points and recommendations for
    improvement to him/her
  • Encourage the mentoree to contact you if she/he
    has any questions in the future

13
What To Look For
  • Following are a series of slides which will give
    the mentor some guidance in determining the
    strong points and areas in which the referee can
    improve his/her performance. They show basic
    characteristics and skills which a referee uses
    in every game.

14
The Uniform
  • A properly dressed
  • referee immediately
  • projects an image of
  • confidence and
  • professionalism upon
  • entering the field of play

15
Pre-Game Instructions
  • The pre-game instructions not only give the
    referee the opportunity to inform the Assistant
    Referees how the game is to be managed, but also
    allow the ARs the chance to ask any questions
    they may have concerning procedures,
    communication, positioning, etc.

16
Flag Signals
  • Mechanically correct
  • Show correct direction
  • Raised decisively
  • Held for 2 seconds

17
Throw-in
  • Arm straight
  • Arm held at 45 degree angle
  • Stop before signaling

18
Hand Signals
  • Throw-in or Foul
  • The mechanics for a throw-in, or showing
    direction for a foul, are similar, with the arm
    held between horizontal and 45 degrees

19
  • Indirect Free Kick
  • Arm held straight up
  • Lower when ball is touched or goes out of play

20
  • Goal Kick
  • Arm held straight in horizontal position
  • Palm down
  • Point toward goal

21
  • Corner Kick
  • Arm held straight at a 45 degree angle
  • Point to corner

22
  • Penalty Kick
  • Arm held straight
  • Point toward penalty spot
  • Loud and long whistle

23
The Whistle
  • The referees voice
  • Develop a repertoire of sounds to mirror the
    reason for blowing it, e.g. a) normal blast for
    stoppages in play, b) a louder and longer blast
    for cautions, and c) still louder and longer for
    ejections, penalty kicks, and the initial
    kick-off
  • Keep it attached to the hand or fingers do not
    hold it in your mouth

24
Eye Contact
  • Eye contact between CR and ARs is essential
  • During stoppages in play
  • During active play
  • Mirror opposite ARs signals when appropriate

25
Positioning
  • General Principles
  • Be in the right position to make the right
    decision
  • The referee keeps the ball between him/her and
    the near AR, i.e. use the diagonal system of
    control
  • Keep within 10 20 yards of the ball
  • On set plays be close to where the ball is
    expected to land

26
  • Corner Kick Position
  • Opposite the far post near the top of the penalty
    area
  • Move to proper location as necessary following
    the kick
  • Vary position throughout the game depending upon
    players actions and levels of ability

27
Foul Recognition
  • Study Law 12 (Fouls and Misconduct) in detail
  • It is the duty of the referee to penalize only
    deliberate breaches of the Law. Constant
    whistling for trifling and doubtful breaches
    produces bad feeling and loss of temper on the
    part of the players and spoils the pleasure of
    the spectators

28
Game Control
  • Know the laws of the game
  • Understand the game
  • Be physically fit
  • Recognize and penalize fouls properly
  • Protect players from injury
  • Respect the players, team officials and
    spectators

29
Game Control (contd)
  • Communicate expectations to players and team
    officials
  • Deal with players who consistently foul
    (persistent infringement)
  • Refrain from argumentative/vindictive behaviour
  • Deal with gamesmanship

30
Fitness
  • Warm-up, physically and mentally, before each
    game
  • Maintain pace from beginning to end of the game
  • Sprint when necessary to be where the play needs
    you
  • Train by yourself or with fellow referees

31
Completing the Mentor Form
  • Following are examples of completed mentor forms
    for referees and assistant referees
  • From the information given, write out the strong
    points, and recommendations for improvement, and
    compare your results to those on the following
    slides
