It's the rules that are critical to fair play and competition. It's the referees that enforce the roles and make the games they officiate fairly played with respect to who wins or loses. Dave Gambridge draws upon his many years officiating in highschool and college basketball to create "Common Sense Officiating: A Survival Guide For Sports Officials", a pocket-sized 'how-to' manual for referring any and all kinds of sports events fairly and professionally. Beginning with exploring why the reader would want to be a referee, Gambridge goes on to cover what can be expected from pre-game meetings, to every quarter of play, to dead-ball situations, to playoffs, to camps, networking, and more. Knowledgeable, comprehensive, and 'user friendly, "Common Sense Officiating" is especially recommended to non-specialist general readers who may be called upon to officiate a game, as well as anyone seeking to improve their officiating skills and expertise as a professional referee for highschool and college athletics of any category or kind.
