I am curious why in FRC coaches and mentors are aloud on the field and in the pits as much as they are.
In all the other levels I work with the coaches and mentors are not aloud to talk to judges or refs. They certainly aren't on the "field".
I don't understand why FRC are highest level allows both. I know it is an option, but if the younger teams can (and must) it seems contradictory(and someways insulting are older kids) to not do the same for them?
