As Junior league competitions are about to start, please remember that everyone has a child there enjoying the game, playing or officiating and without referees this game doesn't exist, or any game that requires a referee/umpire.
Please be mindful that yes mistakes will be had and you can only learn from your mistakes, player and referees will make them but encouragement is the key!!
I urge you after your child's game to go and thank the referee for his or her time, yes he might of had a shocker of a game but your encouragement instead of abuse will help the game keep the junior referees.
