North Texas Announcement on Referees for Spectators

We Need Your Help!!! The average age of a referee is 16 They can start as young as 12 We lose 40-45% of all newly registered referees before their first season is over. HELP US KEEP THE YOUNG REFEREES IN THE PROGRAM. R-Respect the young referee E-Encourage them with some praise, F-Forgive them if they get a call(s) wrong, E-Embolden them by thanking them, R-Remain kind if you think a call is incorrect, E-Elevate them with a positive comment, E-Enjoy the game. You wouldn’t want an adult yelling at your child. Every referee has attended a referee clinic, passed the test, received their badge and is excited to get started. They will make mistakes and that’s OK. Help us change the negative statistic of 40-45% by leaving a positive footprint at every game you watch.

Thank you-North Texas Referees
