Umpire mechanics presentation
« on: May 05, 2022, 01:03:38 PM »
Does anyone have an umpire mechanics presentation available...or know where I can find one?  A friend is looking for one for an upcoming football clinic and he's hoping to not have to reinvent the wheel.  Any help is appreciated.

Not sure what exactly you're looking for (5 or 7 man NCAA?  5-man NHFS? etc.) but here's some resources I am aware of.  Nothing probably right out the box, but enough material to throw a preso toether pretty quickly.

Thank you.  I'll pass these on to him.  Hopefully this will, at least, get him a good start.

TOP PRIORITY OF AN UMPIRE : Stay safe > stay safe by gittin' out of the road > stay out of the road by reading the guards.

IF THE GUARD RETREATS : probable pass, move up toward LOS, watch for grab hold.

IF THE GUARD ADVANCES : play's a' coming your way , git outa' town  and watch for low blocks.

IF THE GUARD PULLS : probable sweep, guard's block is the key to success of play, stay focused on it.

IMHO, THE UMP IS THE TRAFFIC  P_S COP OF THE  ^talk ^talk ^talk, MOST OF CHEAP STUFF SEEMS TO OCCUR AT/AROUND LOS. STAY ALERT AND STSAY VOCAL  P_S.

IMHO, WORK TO BECOME A REFEREE, IT'S MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE TO SEE THE PLAYERS RUNNING AWAY FROMK YOU THEN AT YOU  ;D.

But, the opportunity for casual (or sometimes constructive and/or preventive) private conversation with players of both sides in the "pit" may be the most positive & enjoyable part of officiating.
