TOURNAMENT WEEKS
The next two weeks are tournament weeks in Kansas which means many schools will be playing different teams and seeing different officials. It is important that coaches and officials do a good job of communicating with each other due to some unfamiliarity. If everyone remembers their role - games go very well. Players - Play; Coaches-Coach; Officials-Officiate and fans positively support their teams.

OFFICIALS - AREA MEETINGS REQUIRED FOR POST-SEASON CONSIDERATION
Officials who wish to be post-season eligible are reminded they must receive credit for Area Meeting 1 and Area Meeting 2 in order to meet the requirements for post-season consideration. Reminders about area meeting II were sent in early January. Make sure you attend this meeting to get area meeting credit. It is too late to make up area meeting 1. If you need to make up area meeting 2, you must let me know this week. There are several meetings left, plan to attend one of these. If you attended a camp/clinic and need to use that as an emergency make up meeting you must email me. Requirements for postseason consideration are: Complete rules meeting, score 90% or better on NFHS Test I, attendance at area meeting 1 and 2. Postseason applications are due on February 1, 2019.

KNEE BRACES
There have been a couple instances in which officials have asked coaches to have a player pad a brace that doesn't need to be padded. As a reminder knee and ankle braces which are unaltered from the manufacturer's original design/production are permitted and do not required any additional padding/covering nor do the braces need to meet the color restrictions. These braces may be metal and generally we see them when a player has had some knee surgery and needs the extra support. A brace is defined as anything worn for a medical purpose to increase stability. In general, it is made of a neoprene or elastic knit with an insert embedded to support the joint. It may or may not have a hinge and/or straps or an opening over the kneecap.

A knee sleeve does not have some type of hinge, strap or insert embedded to support the joint. Knee sleeves must meet the color requirements of black, white, beige or the predominant color of the jersey and all must be the same color.

REPORTS
Officials are reminded to they are to submit the Loss of Coaching box report any time the head coach receives a technical foul at any level middle school through high school. The Unusual situations report must be submitted any time a player or coach is ejected. The unusual situations report should also be submitted any time there is an issue with the crowd, score table or any other unusual situation - positive or negative.

PRIMARY COVERAGE AREAS (PCA)
In observing officials the past couple weeks, it is important that officials review their primary coverage areas in pregame. In your packet with rule books a color copy of the two and three person primary coverage area was included. Please review this and stay in your PCA. [ Continue ]
