Dachau - Matthias Schepp (30), group umpire in the area of Dachau/Munich-North, says: "The subject of referees at the mercury CUP, or in the case of younger vintages is playing in the League is complicated, because there are different aspects to consider and to take account of interests. We are careful in these encounters, our offspring, which is then, of course, are often still very inexperienced and with a lot of theory in my head from the referee course is coming. Then apply it all in practice, it is a Problem if it whistles too strict or too loose. Because then it can quickly lead to Trouble with parents and coaches. The goal must be, that the referee is always predictable and decisions clearly falls. No room have a referee in the case of insults, assaults, or gross Unsportsmanlike. The margin of discretion of arbitrators in the case of a Foul or hand game of course, significantly larger. A top priority must always be the children of the beginning of a respectful relationship on both sides to teach what needs to be in the first line of the adult field pre lives.“ roUpdated Date: 22 June 2020, 10:34
