• ### L1 2 Mod 3 Game Mechanics

1. 1. Level 1-2 Field Lacrosse Referee Clinic 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 1 Module #3 - CLA
2. 2. Module #3 Game Mechanics and Positioning 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 2 Module #3 - CLA
3. 3. What We Will Cover In This Module Referee Signals & Communication Field Positioning & Mechanics 2 Man System 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 3 Module #3 - CLA
4. 4. Referee Signals & Communication  Communication amongst the referees, the benches, and the players is vital to a well officiated game  Done properly, all participants, including the fans, will understand what is going on at any point in the game  Referee decisions should virtually be capable of being understood from the use of hand signals alone  Signals must be learned to the point, where they become automatic 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 4 Module #3 - CLA
5. 5. Referee Signals & Communication  Signals should be animated, with the hands held high  When making signals, move to open space so that you can be seen. Pause, and then make the call, both audibly and visually  The other referee(s) need to see the call, so that if queried, they can respond intelligently  Coaches, players and your partner react to your signals, so they must be clear & accurate. Make sure you point in the same direction as to the colour you are calling 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 5 Module #3 - CLA
6. 6. Referee Signals & Communication Personal Foul Penalty Call E-Lacrosse.com 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 6 Module #3 - CLA
7. 7. Referee Signals & Communication  Standardized way of reporting fouls: 1. Notify the offending player of his foul 2. Get in the open and notify the bench the A. Team colour B. Number of the player committing the foul C. Type and signal for the foul D. Duration of the penalty 3. Repeat the foul to the bench or your partner if you are the lead official 4. Other ref get ball ready for restart 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 7 Module #3 - CLA
8. 8. Referee Signals & Communication 3 Types of Signals Procedural Signals Personal Foul Signals – Covered elsewhere Technical Foul Signals – Covered elsewhere 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 8 Module #3 - CLA
9. 9. Referee Signals & Communication Procedural Signals Goal No Goal Face-Off Possession Time Out Direction of Play Loose Ball Simultaneous Fouls 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 9 Module #3 - CLA
10. 10. Referee Signals & Communication Procedural Signals 4 Second Count Play On Crease Re-Entry 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 10 Module #3 - CLA
11. 11. Referee Signals & Communication  Scoring of a Goal  The lead official blows their whistle  Moves to the edge of the crease, and holds their arms straight up E-Lacrosse.com 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 11 Module #3 - CLA
12. 12. Referee Signals & Communication Crease Possession Count (4 Seconds) The lead official begins to count audibly and visually when a defensive player has possession in the crease No Goal Blow the whistle Move immediately to the crease Wave off the goal – and audibly shout “No Goal” Indicate reason 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 12 Module #3 - CLA
13. 13. Referee Signals & Communication Goal – flag down on Technical Penalty - signal goal - signal infraction and wipe-out - signal goal again 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 13 Module #3 - CLA
14. 14. Referee Signals & Communication  Starting Play The referee who will start play holds their arm straight up in the air to signal they are to start play. Blow your whistle when ready to start play. 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 14 Module #3 - CLA
15. 15. Referee Signals & Communication  Direction of Play  Once the “on” referee identifies the direction of play, he shouts the colour who will get possession of the ball  Other referees point in the direction play will go until play is whistled in  Possession  On a draw, once a team has gained possession, the draw referee, then other referees signal audibly and visually – Possession (not colour) 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 15 Module #3 - CLA
16. 16. Positioning & Field Mechanics Proper field positioning is essential: It gives the referee the best opportunity to make the correct call Rules will be enforced more effectively There will be less opportunity for coaches, players or fans to complain about calls, or non calls 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 16 Module #3 - CLA
17. 17. Positioning & Field Mechanics In order to make the correct call, you have to be in the right place, at the right time. These mechanics if followed, will give you that opportunity. 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 17 Module #3 - CLA
18. 18. Positioning & Field Mechanics Two Man Mechanics Used for most lacrosse games in Canada Head Referee, generally the senior referee is in charge, & makes any final decisions Each referee will work on opposite sides of the field. Each is responsible for the goal to their Left Head Referee will start the game by taking the opening face off, and work the far side of the field for the first two quarters. He works Bench Side for the final two quarters 2009 Game Mechanics & Positioning Slide 18 Module #3 - CLA
