Topic: How to Talk to Referees

  • 6:30-8:00 pm Presentation
  • Online

Have you ever yelled at a referee and then proceeded to get what you want? Didn't think so... Talking with referees is a skill. If done with respect and understanding, talking to a referee presents a unique opportunity to influence the officiating in a game. With stories, examples, a real officials perspective, Chris Bruce will take a deep dive into how coaches can best communicate with the officials on the ice.
