023 – Coach Ritchie McKay

Liberty University men’s basketball coach, Ritchie McKay, joins us to talk about the relationship between coaches and officials. From a coach’s perspective, how should officials be prepared to officiate a game? From an officials perspective, how should a coach be managed in tough situations? Coach McKay has four observations to pass along to officials. They are:

  1. Coaches see the outcome of the game as a reflection of themselves.
  2. Officials need to come prepared.
  3. Officials must work together as a crew to communicate effectively.
  4. Coaches have long memories.

003 – Was first-time camp experience worth it for two young officials?

On today’s show I interview two guys who have a couple years’ experience under their belts, but are eager to continue to grow and learn. They each recently attended a reffing camp and share about their experiences.

This interview gets us off to a great start as these guys share some great insights on the game.

p.s. Don’t mind the organ music in the back ground… 🙂
