Relaxing and enjoying game by game......

High school basketball season is in full swing and I put in a full week's worth of officiating last week (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday).  The majority of the games were high school except for a youth tournament on Sunday.

Overall, despite being very tired, I enjoyed myself.    Basketball officiating can be tough but I'm focused on keeping relaxed and being much more aware of game situations.   I think I did a fairly good job overall in all of my games and one of my partners noted that he saw that I enjoyed officiating.  In fact, I like being on the floor and I am not focused on the type of game (Frosh, JV, Varsity, etc).   I hope this translates to better performance on the floor.

There may be a few technical things that I learned form last week that I post about, but that's for another time!
