New Instructional Videos

I have 3 videos for training purposes:

Line Judge Training
This LJ training video is best I’ve found to share with officials. The one thing it doesn’t show in the beginning is the “ready position.” The ready position should have 2 hands on the flag held in front of the hips. Dominant hand on the handle and the other hand at the tip-end of the flag.

Pre-match R1-LJ Conference
This video is how an R1 does pre-match conference with Line Judges. If adults are to be used, R1’s will still have to talk to them prior to match.

Correct use of Hands for signaling “numbers” between R1/R2
Every official needs to watch and practice along with this video.

These will be sent out to All officials prior to season. I’ve requested CIAC send LJ video to ADs/Coaches at each school incase they decide to use adults.
