11 JUL 2018

Good Morning Everyone.

10 July 2018 was our last video and rules question session for this year.  On behalf of Rick Tucci and the entire USWOA staff, we would like to thank each of you for your support and participation in our daily “What is your call” video and “Rules Question” sessions. 

Our daily sessions began on 12 February and it has been quite an educational journey.  We analyzed and discussed 123 situational videos and rules questions, and had over 294,000 views on our USWOA webpage and Facebook pages.  The goal of this forum was not to determine who was right or wrong, but rather “why” you made the call. 

Your analysis and open dialogue was impressive and educational. We may not have always agreed with the scoring solutions, and that's ok, as many of our situations potentially had more than one solution.  We hope our daily sessions were as much of a benefit for you as they were for us.

We are planning to resume our daily “You make the call” video and rules question sessions again in February 2019. 

We wish each of you the very best refereeing has to offer and again Thank You.

Tim Pierson
