Referees are in charge of making sure that games are played according to rules.
All sports competitions will have a referee, although they may be called “judges” or “umpires” in some sports.
In order to become a referee, you must have very good knowledge of the game or sport and you must be able to stay alert for the whole game.
Some sports like football and basketball require the referee to be very physically fit!
In some sports like soccer, referees also get assistants who are called linesmen.
Being a referee for any game comes with a lot of responsibility and you must always be fair in the decisions you make!
