To Referees


When I’m refereeing youth soccer games

I don’t just dip into my pocket for a card

I explain why what they did was wrong

Some players listen some don’t

Parents love to be announcers

They try to get under your skin

You need to ignore them

I know it’s not easy to do

Just remember

You are trained

You know the rules of the game

– James
