This position requires considerable commitment by the referee/timekeeper (and parents/guardians). This includes following a dress code, being punctual, mandatory monthly meetings, procedures, record keeping, game sheet accuracy, organization, personal skills, professional conduct, rules knowledge, equipment expense and annual re-certification. Arenas can be cold, shifts may be long, and spectators and participants can be emotional. Tournaments require assignments during some weekdays. Shifts may start early in the morning and some can end late at night. Is this commitment acceptable to your household?
