Question Number: 23416

Pre-Game 6/4/2010

RE: AYSO U12 Under 12

Mike of Chino Hills, CA USA asks...

This question is a follow up to question 23406

By the time I reached the bottom of the instructions, I had forgot the preamble. LOL, I guess that proves the theory about 'three things' :-) No question this time, just thanks for the replies. The pregame article is a useful guide that I will tailor to my needs. As Ken Aston once said, 'Refereeing is thinking', so we should be thoughtful and comprehensive in our pregame. Particularly at higher level competition.
