    MANAGING EMOTIONS IS KEY WHEN MISTAKES ARE MADE

    By Tim Leighton

    It is a moment of dread that no official wants to face.

    You, or another member of your crew, has just made a mistake while officiating a contest. The angst quickly builds as you assess the play where a misapplication of the rules or a miscalculation in judgement were used.
