VIDEO TRAINING HEIGHTENS PERFORMANCE
The group of approximately 50 officials from the Capital Area Officials Association (CAOA) in Lansing, Michigan, watched the same high school football play repeatedly for nearly a half hour at one of its regular Monday meetings.
There was spirited discussion as to whether the play resulted in a touchdown or fumble. Opinions flowed as to how their fellow officials – some of whom were also in the room that night – might have positioned themselves differently, focused on keys differently, reacted differently.
And, at the end of nearly 30 minutes, no definitive conclusion was reached.
