Refereeing Basketball at the Boys and Girls Club.
For my community service, I volunteered to referee basketball games at the boys and girls club of Brookings, South Dakota. The tournaments were for 4th-6th grade girls and boys. I enjoyed working with different officials, coaches, and players. I had to think on my feet and be able to deal with unruly behavior, much like I may have to in my own classroom. My goal going in was to help the young players learn the game and have fun.
