Concussion Training Please take some time to review the concussion training program. The training is extremely valuable given the emerging concern of concussions within the sports world. LHSA strongly encourages its coaches to educate themselves on concussions and practicing the proper procedures advised within the training.
Working With Recreation Referees Please note that the recreation referees are also part of a team, are also being coached for development, and need to be positively and constructively assisted and ultimately entrusted to make the final decisions at game time.
The referees are never to be argued with or ignored. Just as we expect field players to be coached so they can make their own decisions on the field of play, so it is with the referees. Yes, they will make mistakes, but with proper coaching, they will learn from those situations and become better, more confident referees in the next game.
If you feel a particular situation needs more review, please contact the referee coach at
