What is a Pattern?

A Pattern describes the number of officials, and types of officials, needed for a specific game.

Each game is assigned a pattern. And every pattern has:

  1. A name that describes the pattern.

  2. One or more positions associated with it.

For Example...

As an example, a typical soccer game has three officials: one referee and two assistant referees.

A pattern that describes this scenario looks like:

  • Name β€” Three Officials

  • Position β€” Referee

  • Position β€” Assistant Referee

  • Position β€” Assistant Referee

How to Add or Modify a Pattern:
