Tournament Reffing

I've seen a thread for reffing at a field for practice/rec(by rec I mean non tournament, not actual rec ball) play, but I was looking for a basic guideline and tips for tournament reffing. I've reffed at a field but never for a tournament and would like to do a good job for a tournament I'm being thrown into in a couple months. Thanks

Most Important: Make sure you know the rules.

Ask those running the tournament for a copy of the rules that will be used. If they can't provide you with a rule book, be concerned! This makes your job VERY VERY stressful, especially if a confrontation occurs and players will want to know the rules for questionable calls.

When you're reffing a Tournament there is no looking the other direction for little things. Everything counts, every hit, every instance, and you need to be aware of all of those things to help the event run smoothly.

Do Not chat with players before, during or after games, no matter if they are your friends or not, this may cause people to question your impartiality and can cause stress and tension.

At the end of the day: Relax and be confident in your calls and knowledge of the rules.
