November 17-18, Salem
One question I hear often is: "What do you tell your officials". This year, I am giving parents and coaches the opportunity to receive the exact some communication that I send to my officials.
I have found that when everyone (coaches, parents & officials) knows what's being communicated and what the expectations are, there is a better understanding in the gym on the weekends.
If this communication is something you are interested in receiving or your parents are interested in receiving, please use this link to subscribe to our list.

I CANNOT BE MORE CLEAR ON THIS:I NEED OFFICIALS MORE THAN I NEED TEAMS. Parents and coaches are not to confront an official for any reason after the game. Doing so could be a barrier to your programs participation in future events; refunds will not be given in these instances. If you have issues with referees, read below. Make sure your parents have this information. Yes, I will drop teams from tournaments and ban teams from future events for parent conduct.
COACHES -All of our officials are OSAA or NCAA certified. If you have issues with our officials, please note the time of game and court. Call me Monday to discuss the issue. Ido not deal with referee issues in the gym. Do not call me about officials during the weekend; you won't like the answer I give you. I can't waive a magic wand and make them better; nor will I move officials to a different court.
That said, You guys are my eyes and ears and I value your opinion as coaches. I want to have the best referees on the court as possible. I need to know who the weak officials are and who the strong ones are so I know who to retain and who to let go. You have a voice, you just need to use it in the right, respectable way.
PARENTS -If you have an issue with a referee, you must direct it through your coach. Parents or coaches who confront an official after the game will be banned from future games/events.
My staff and I look forward to hosting you this weekend.
