The referee starts the exercise from cone nº 1 with a backwards run (10 m) to cone nº 2, followed by a sprint (10 m) to cone nº 3 and then a deceleration run (5 m) to cone nº 4. He ends with a sprint, passing between the cones on the halfway line towards the decision-making area.
The referee identifies players guilty of unsporting behaviour or violent conduct and applies the appropriate disciplinary sanctions.
The referee controls the situation according to his own knowledge of what has happened, or according to the information provided by the assistant referee. He keeps at all times a calm, firm and respectful behaviour.
The referee and the assistant referee are proactive and choose the best dynamic position to handle the situation by assuming the appropriate distance and order. The referee makes clear and timely gestures. Also, by moving and using his central line and arms, he avoids any mass confrontation as well as being in the middle in the event that occurred.
The assistant referee starts the exercise from cone nº 1 (5 m from the halfway line) with a sprint (10 m) to cone nº 2, followed by a deceleration run (5 m) to cone nº 2. He finishes with a sprint to the decision-making area.

The assistant referee diverts the players’ attention to the referee and divides the focus of attention into different directions.
The attacking team scores a goal. An attacking player tries to pick up the ball inside the goal, while a defender or the goalkeeper prevents him from doing so. Other players join the confrontation.
In the other half of the field of play, a defender commits a foul against the attacker in the working area of the assistant referee. The attacker reacts to the tackle and confronts him. Other players join the confrontation.
At the start of the confrontation, a player places himself in front of the referee, blocking his view and drawing his attention ostensibly. An aggression takes place in the area of the assistant referee.
The instructor blows the whistle at 30 second intervals, coordinates the groups taking part in the exercise and controls the execution of the exercise technique.

From both positions, the instructor organizes the action, instructs the players and makes the relevant observations.
The instructor checks and reinforces the confidence and team work shown.
The instructor checks that the three officials handle correctly the concepts of direction, time, timing, order, distance and mass confrontation. The assistant referee provides an immediate individual and group evaluation to offer the best strategy in terms of the use of space, the control of body elements and the time control of the situation.
