The Court Vision Philosophy

Foundations Built in Trust

There is no greater asset to have in sports officiating than trust. When you walk onto the court and trust yourself, you have overcome the first hurdle to reaching your officiating goals. This cannot, however, be a blind trust based in ego, but one built from the establishment of good habits and a continued growth mindset. 

At Court Vision, our number one goal is to give you the tools needed to build this trust in yourself, which will lead to the other types of trust you must gain to reach your full potential as an official:

Trust of your partners,

Trust of your assignors,

Trust of coaches/players.

Developing Trust

Trust in Yourself​​

  • Earned through consistent habits and honest self-evaluation

    • Health Habits (Diet, Exercise, Mental Health)​

    • Mechanics (Film Review and Self-Evaluation)

    • Rules Knowledge (Study and Application)

Trust of Your Partners

  • Earned through consistent character and willing to put the crew before yourself

    • Off-Court (Communication, Timeliness, Support)​

    • On-Court (Awareness, Rules, Selfless)

Trust of Your Assignors

  • Earned through consistent professionalism

    • Off-Court (Closed Dates, Travel, Availability)​

    • On-Court (Rules, Willingness, Leadership)

Trust of Coaches/Players

  • Earned through consistent communication and perception of fairness

    • Communication (Listening, Calm, Rapport)​

    • Fairness through Awareness (Play-Calling, Timeouts, Situations)

"Trust is built with consistency."
- Lincoln Chafee
