The following are the basic protocols which officials will utilize when using the communication headsets during games.
*All headsets MUST be charged PRIOR to arrival at the game site.
*All officials on the crew must use the headsets. If any member(s) of the crew do not have operable headsets with them, no one will use them. This also references situations which may occur during the game where a headset becomes inoperable for a reason
Game Day – On Field
*When entering field prior to the game, crew should separate a distance of 15-20 feet, then R will start an individual contact with each position. The person contacted will then respond
*When R is discussing penalty options with captains or making foul announcements over the field microphone, NO OTHER discussions will occur between the remaining members of the crew during this period.
*During the game, verbiage between crew members is to be limited by both subject matter and who will be designated in certain situations to be verbalize situations
Game and Play Clock Status
*Status of game clock will be announced primarily by the BJ.To assist R has prior to when ball would be marked ready for play. The simple language will be:
●“Hot, Hot”(game clock should start) or
●“Dead, Dead”(game clock starts at snap)
*Communication between BJ & R may be enhanced thru O2O regarding play clock status (40/25)
*When the down ends, the covering or ruling official will stop the game clock for an injured player. Subsequent to that, if it is not apparent why you are stopping the clock to the other officials simply announce:
●“Injured player down
Announcing / Reporting Fouls
*If there is a foul at the end of a down, we WILL NOT stand over our flag and try to announce the penalty. As in the past you will run into the referee and conference. If you have a foul prior to the snap, and only one official or one team obviously committed the foul (BJ with delay of game, Team A obvious false start, Team B offside with contact), as in the past you should move toward R, give the offending player’s number.
*IF there are multiple officials down with flags, or a situation where there could be multiple potential fouls (Team B in neutral zone, and A false starting),the officials will conference in the same manner as before, then the proper official will move in and inform the referee unlikely there will be an announcementusing the official’s headset
*We DO NOT want to stand over our flags or stay outside and try to simply “phone in” our foul:
This gives the perception to the stakeholders (coaches, fans, administrators), that you are lazy or too tired to hustle we want to avoid a negative perception, as irrational or misinformed as that perception maybe.
If it is windy, you are jogging, or your transmission is jumbled due to technical issues, the referee or “other” official may not hear you, or may misunderstand what you say.
2. Jogging into report to the referee provides the calling official time to “sort out” what he needs to report on his way to the conference.
3. By jogging in to R, if another member of your crew has a question or different call, he can run to you and confer with you before you get to R.
4. Try to be aware of your vocal tone/delivery. If you are trying to talk while running, or are really excited, your voice can come across shrill or very “tinny” sounding, which can make you sound more like a high pitched dog whistle.
5. Be aware that you can’t start talking the moment you push you talk button – often there is a delay in transmission, and you may be on the fourth word of your explanation, before others may hear your words.
