games need regulation

To increase my regulatory expertise, I recently attended a four-day VHSL Basketball Officials Camp.  The camp included both class sessions with top officials and on-court practice. The supervising officials provided extensive feedback on mechanics and calls.  One supervising official told me bluntly to drop my laissez-faire approach and put some air in my whistle.  By the end of the camp I was more actively managing the competition.  Overall, the camp was excellent.  It made me a better official.

Better officials benefit all players.  Better officials make for better games.

  1. “…drop my laissez-faire approach and put some air in my whistle…”

    Now that is solid, universally applicable advice, on a par with “You just put your lips together and blow” (To Have and Have Not, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall)
