CAMP DAY 4 – Referees and coaches with the common approach

Saturday… after 3 long days of the camp the day before always brings you mixed feelings, you are happy you were here, a bit sad that the next day it is finishing, so you are trying your best, despite of the fact that you are tired, and you want to take with you as much as possible. And so did our referees today.

Also Saturday was very tight schedule, as there was ongoing 5 games in the morning session in 3 gyms, and 6 games in the afternoon in 3 gyms. Which 2 of the from the high level tournament with the top polish league teams involved.

From Sasa, who spoke about travelling, we could remind ourselves and categorize in mind the points of emphasis and criteria for the travel violation.

The main point of the day, that everybody waited for, was the meeting with coach, Euroleague style, for which 2 coaches from Polish top league were invited to help us common opinion on the basketball actions we have in our game. Divided for groups by Costas, we were watching Euroleague clips, that were just showed to Euroleague referees at the camps for crew chiefs, and exchanging opinions, so we could listen to how coaches sees it from their side. This was very interesting experience, as we could noticed that not always referees and coaches has common approach, and so this is the place where the conflict happens. This is why this dialogue is very important. Because we can learn something from them, understand how they teach players, where they want foul to be called. But also coaches need to understand us and the thing that we are working by the rule book. So as we could experienced, and Costas confirm that in Euroleague is the same, not always we as referees agreed with coaches. This was valuable spent time for both sides. Even the coaches said they were very happy to learn new things.

Then we have a physical preparation lecture done by Reha Forma representing people. The outcome of it was impressive, as most of us realized that we do not stretch proper before and after the game. So the presenter showed us set of exercises we shall to do about 15 minutes before we go to the court. Campers were very interested. They were asking questions, so eventually the Reha team stayed twice long as they first estimated for the presentation.

During feedback Costas made the summary speech, when still all participants and instructors were there as Sunday is the day everybody is leaving and mostly in different hour. Taking from his words, he has seen many good referees on this camp and maybe next meeting they have will be on FIBA or Euroleague, as it already happened like this on our camp.
