We support referees at all levels of the refereeing pathway – whether just starting out or wanting to progress to referee at national and international level.

For a game of basketball to take place there needs to be either two or three referees. These referees are on the court and have the power to stop the game by blowing their whistle when the rules of the game deem so. Referees make decisions such as deeming when a player has committed a foul or a violation, when a basket has been scored and much more. Referees work together with the table officials and the statisticians to ensure the fairness and accuracy of the game.

You need to be fit to referee, but it is also a great way to keep fit, make new friends and be involved in the sport you love!
