Topic: Players officiating their own tournament
When the IWFFA introduced flag football to the Scandinavians, back in the 90’s, there were no flag football teams, coaches, even american tackle football
was not so popular and so the women had to play, coach and officiate themselves.
The players themsevles officiating was excellent - The outcome was fantastic!
The Scandinavian tournaments have always incorporated their own players officiating the tournament games when their team is not competing
USA players may think of this as an unfair advantage.
However, actualy, players officiating their own games changed the flavor of the sport games and teams camaraderie
Their games are friendly, competitive and never once was there an unfair advantage our call which teams protested due to unfair advantage
The IWFFA offers our members - officiating clinics - for free - in order to create better players, high quality officials
and the IWFFA allows players to officiate in tournaments they are competing in as players .
It this controversial?
What are the Advantages
What are the Disadvantages
