End of timer

We have a referee that making the kids have the controllers set down before time expires. This is making them lose .5-1.5 seconds of time. Shouldn’t the official just make sure the robot has stopped at the end of time?

The practice of having kids put their controllers down at the end of the match is normal. However, the referees should be asking that the controllers be placed down at the end of the match, not before the match is over.
