Officials - AA Provincials


Welcome to the 2020 AA Provincial Championships!

 

Officials....we want to Thank You!

Without officials, the games could not go on! You are an integral part of what makes our game successful and we appreciate the time and effort you put in to keep our games running smoothly. For every game & tournament, communication is key! We have outlined a few details we hope will make things run smoothly, however in the unfortunate event something goes wrong, please contact one of the Officials supervisors immediately.  Ref supervisor contact information will be shared with all officials by RAB prior to the tournament.

We are looking forward to a fun weekend full of great ringette! Majority of games will take pace at TLC but if you are not there, we encourage you to swing by our Tournament Headquarters there, and check out some of the great things we have set up. If you are also a participating athlete, we wish you good luck in all of your games!

 


 

SPECTATOR LIASION

A Team Spectator Liaison is being introduced for the 2020 AA Provincial Championships. This is a position that was introduced by the Black Gold League for all league games for the 2019/2020 season.  The Team Liaison will act together with the other teams Liaison to moderate unacceptable team spectator behaviour.  The Spectator Liaison can be any person associated with a player on the team and must be over the age of 18. Their name must be PRINTED on the game sheet in the space provided (vertical space beside black HOME or VISITOR bar). One identifying yellow Spectator Liaison neck lanyard will be provided to the team staff in attendance at the Coaches meeting.

They will act as the contact point for each team's spectators to pass and receive concerns about spectator behaviour.  This person is responsible for liaising with the Provincial Committee Chair, RAB Representative and Officials Supervisor, if necessary. 

The Liaison will act on the feedback by approaching their OWN team's spectators and share the concern and request the spectator moderate their behaviour.  The spectator(s) is expected to respect the Liaison's request.
