Why become a Referee?

There are lots of reasons why people get involved in refereeing. Some of the common reasons are:

  • Friendships: Officiating creates and sustains friendships that last a lifetime. Becoming a referee lets you meet people from all walks of life that all have the same passion for basketball like you.
  • Keep Fit: Officiating will keep you fit both physically and mentally. We as officials are also athletes out there on the court and it requires a lot of mental resiliance to offciate. 
  • Opportunities for all: Officiating is open to everyone; you just need to be ready to learn and have fun!
  • Reimbursement: Officiating allows you to get to do something you love and get reimbursed for it.
  • Life Skills: Officiating requires a unique skill set, communication skills, time management, dedication, leadership, and teamwork. These same skills can not only help you with officating but also in your job, in school or at home.
  • Stay Connected: Used to be a player/coach and no longer play/coach? Why not become an offcial and stay conncted with the sport.

Get ready to challenge yourself and start one of the most rewarding jobs you’ll ever have!

The first step for people who are interested in becoming a referee is attending a “Introduction to basketball Refereeing course”, this course will provide you with the basics and will set you up to be able to officiate junior games of basketball. If we are unable to provide you with the course due lack of attendees we can give you on the job training. On-court you can expect to receive on-court training and receive one-on-one coaching support from our awesome mentors and trainers.
