13 Apr Difficult?
my team mate asked me today, is it difficult reffing, having to deal with what they heard about angry parents and players as a fairly new ref.
i think i am extremely lucky that we have a very understanding and encouraging community. not gon lie no excuses that my reffing sucks. yet i never had to deal with managing rude remarks as a referee. i have parents coming in to give me pep talks before games, seniors telling me my mistakes in a constructive manner, players in the heat of a rough game forgiving, if not encouraging the calls, bad or not, that i made.
i just wanna dedicate my appreciation to these people in the support i get, which i recognize that is a luxury to most refs, that i enjoy growing with y’all as a team, as a community. love y’all much.
