SDCFOA Information Update - Steve Coover

"First off, you've got to be a good person!" - David Coleman, PAC 12 Supervisor of Officials

Goal setting for the season starts with this quote! We owe it to ourselves, and to our crewmates, to take some time and reflect on the elements of our character that could be made even better. To assist in this activity, I suggest you read and reflect on the section on Goals and Preparedness on pages 2-4 of the 20182019 SDCFOA Mechanics and Philosophies Manual, paying particular attention to the first three sections:

Character; Relationship; and Presence. Then, turn to pages 86-88 and slowly review the Qualities of an Excellent Crew Mate. Again, pay special attention to those traits that will make us an even better person, and official!
