  1. Take a coaching clinic or work on earning your coaching licenses.  Visit the OYSA site for more information and schedules on clinics and coaching license courses.
  2. Be accepting of the referee’s decisions.  No foul or abusive language.  Remember these referees are in training.
  3. Remain calm.
  4. Do not make loud, offensive remarks.
  5. Concentrate on coaching, rather than on the accuracy of the referee’s decisions.
  6. Be a role model of fair play.
