2nd ANNUAL COACHES/OFFICIALS SUMMIT
GROVES HIGH SCHOOL
20500 W. 13 MILE ROAD, BIRMINGHAM
SMALL THEATER (West Entrance)
MARCH 20, 2018
We are pleased to announce that we will host the 2nd annual Coaches/Officials Summit. Our objectives are to build on the last year’s success while incorporating the meaningful suggestions from the attendees. It is appropriate to say that officiating philosophy and rules application should be uniform regardless of which crew is working a game or which assigner sent them so, although this event is hosted by the MDAO, we are inviting everybody who is affected by the coach/official relationship. We believe having this type of meeting in the off-season and away from the intensity of a game can really accomplish our goals which are to:
1. Strive for mutual trust and understanding between both groups through straight-forward, constructive and honest dialog.
2. Break down barriers that emanate from a lack of communication both on and off the field
3. Get everyone on the same page involving the most inconsistently enforced rules (called or not – and why).
7p-8p – Dan Kellogg (official) & Pete Oudsema (official) will give a presentation about effective communication. Ken Stefanski (official) will give a presentation about holding including video.
8p-9p – Open forum Q&A. Coaches, officials and AD’s are encouraged to e-mail Bob Foss (firstname.lastname@example.org) any specific questions in advance.
There will be light refreshments and snacks
With your help, we can continue to improve the High School Football experience for everyone.
Thanks for your cooperation.
