      • I understand I or a team rep is to be court-side during all assigned officiating responsibilities.

      • I will bring a whistle for my R2, as well as a time keeping device.

    • Warm-up balls are not provided.
    • Trash – I am responsible for the cleanliness of my team’s bench area.
    • Vandalism – My players know that anyone defacing or otherwise doing damage to any part of a facility or equipment will be asked to leave, especially the score book and flip scores.
