Re: Roller Hockey Alliance
Its right there from the source folks - It doesnt get any better!!
I, for one, am glad to hear that the RIGHT people are not only behind it, but are going to follow through - I agree 100% with Daryn...I don't side with one or the other and both have a lot of good things involved I see nothing going on as far as officiating or coaching...Neither program is any further along from where it was what 6-7 years ago - is there anywhere to go, incentives, anything?
There is no coaching certification - Dad is behind the bench or someone donating there time...and though its not their fault, for most - they dont really know all about the game and Im sure they wouldnt mind being educated, but there are other things they can be held responsible for and thats what they need to know -- The incentives here are qualify and get to Finals or Nationals...maybe we can come together and create national programs that give coaches an incentive to attend
There really isnt any referee certification either - Apply...do an open book test...Congrats, your a ref!!! We need to offer classes or programs to train and then evaluate our officials and as they move from the local leagues to the tourneys, to NARCh Finals, State Wars or TORHS nationals or any major event....
I have petitioned the people to be and offered my time to these organizations as well -- I was a part of USAIL's player development program as a coach and I have been a long standing official with most tourney organizations for up to 7-8 years now and have had the priviledge to work every major event in North America.
I will still give back and work with this new alliance to further our sport and provide the knowledge and guidence all I can -- I am all about what this organization brings to the table
My best to RHA as it embarks in its quest to fulfill our sport with everything it needs and help it grow all around!!!!!!!!!!!
