And now for the details...

Gav will be running the practical refereeing session from 11am – 1pm, before the Ed City beginners tournament (at the same venue: Westlands?). The session is going to be aimed more at how to referee matches, rather than a rule focused session (though please read the rule book and guidance notes / IKF bulletins – all on the SKA website). The course will aim to cover the following:
• On court positioning – during attacks, at free passes, when the ball is moving from defence into attack.
• How to decide if a shot is defended.
• Refereeing the ‘collecting’ dual.
• Refereeing the ‘feed’ position
• When and when not to allow advantage.
• Judging who is committing a foul (eg is it the attacker leaning in to the defender or the defender pushing the attacker).
• Holding off – what to look for.
• What is and is not cutting.

The idea will be to go through the above by using the participants to simulate game situations, but also for those that are on the course to ask questions based on situations they have seen either in games they have refereed or games they have played. After the course, Gav will be at the tournament, so will continue to work with the referees throughout the day.

Please can clubs/individuals let Gav know by email by 9th October the names of anybody in their club that wants to attend – there is no maximum number from each club that can attend, but he needs to be sure there is enough interest to run the course.
