Referee Dedication

It's the Referee Apologist again...


OK Coaches - respond to this ! ! !

I have spent the last hour, with another hour to go, recording and updating the results of referees taking the Level II Rules Test for the Intermediate-Level course Minor Fouls.

80% is passing.

They are allowed unlimited re-takes.

So, far, after recording the results of over 50 referee students, the LOWEST score I have yet to record is 93%.

Did I mention that 80% was passing?

The SHORTEST time I have seen any referee spend on this exam is 1 hour and 15 minutes.

You know what this means? A referee gets a score... it is not 100%... it may be 80%, but not 100%... they re-take... and re-take... and re-take.


Think about that the next time you whine about a USAWP certified referee not knowing the rules.
