Player, Parent Message about Referees

Flag football is a new game to Ottawa. Every player, coach and referee is getting used to this game. We have many experienced refs and a bunch of new younger refs. We have worked hard in training these new refs but this is not a 2 week process. From my experience as a coach, Bell Warrior administrator and director of the NCAFA Flag Football league I can state with great confidence that the referees know the rules better than most coaches, players and parents in terms of being able to call a game. They are by no means perfect. They are learning and growing each week with more flag football refereeing experience. Another factor is that we only have 1 ref per field. This makes for a very challenging referee situation. I hope to have more 2 referee games. With the energy ramping up each week I would like to set some guidelines for referee interactions over the next few weeks. 

1. Talk respectfully to the referee. 

2. Choose an appropriate time to talk to the referee.

3. Respect the referee's decision. 

If players and coaches do not follow the above guidelines I have instructed the referees to issue warnings, penalties and / or ejections at their discretion depending on the incident.  

Please talk to your son or daughter about respectful interactions between players and referees. 

Please remember that parent behaviour can also influence the behaviour of the players. It is instinctive to react to referee calls that you don't agree with especially as the intensity of competition increases. However intense and prolonged outbursts are hurtful and intimidating to our referees and affect the enjoyment of the game for everyone. Refereeing is a very difficult job and we need to promote the work they do, not tear them down.
