Coaching communication system for referees

The AXIWI communication system is thé tool for guiding and coaching other referees. With the communication system you are in direct contact with referees on the field. You can give directly instructions on distance by the wireless referee communication system from AXIWI. The communication system is also very good to use for communication between coaches and their assistents, during a training or a game.

Talent development

The communication system is also used to guide talented referees by referee coaches. During a game a referee coach stands next to the field, but is in direct contact with the referee by using the wireless AXIWI communication system. The referee can give direct feedback to the referee in the field about his performance. The information that the referee coach gets during the game (by listening to what the referee is saying), he can use after the game for the evaluation with the referee and increase the performance of the referee.

Referee training / course

The referee communication system is the perfect solution for coaches who are guiding starting referees. With the communication system a coach can give instructions about how to walk in the field and where to stand in certain game situations.

Survey: Which possibilities does a communication system offers referees and sports?

Referees take more correct and faster decisions with communication system

In June 2016 Axitour Communication Systems has held a survey among referees in Holland. The referees who participated on the survey are active on all levels and in a variety of sports. To obtain the information we made a survey for referees who are working with a communications system and who aren’t working with a communication system: 105 to 419.

More information about the survey: Check the webpage with the main results, the Infographic and the official Press Release of the survey.
