As part of the All Girls Campaign Basketball England is responsible for increasing the number of women & girls involved in the Game. All Girls is a Basketball England campaign designed to raise the profile and awareness of women and girls’ basketball at all levels and in all facets of the game. The idea behind it is to break down the barriers women and girls face and create more tailored opportunities to play, coach, officiate and follow our game.
Whether you are already involved or completely new to the game there is an opportunity for you to get involved. As part of the All Girls Campaign, women and girls, who have a desire to get into officiating and progress up the officiating pathway, are being offered bursaries to become qualified at Level 2 & Level 3 or or attend one of a number of development camps which provides an opportunity to progress up the officiating pathway.
If you are you brand new to the game and interested in taking up table officiating or refereeing or you are you a club, league or association who has an interest in recruiting women and girls into officiating then there is an opportunity for this to happen.
We’re keen to develop our female workforce and networks, create a platform for the women’s game to be celebrated as standard and develop, implement and deliver a pathway for all women and girls in the game through table officiating or refereeing.
If you are female and are interested in becoming an official or developing as an official then we would like to support this aspiration. Bursary amounts are arbitrary and those honoured will depend on the number of applications we receive. Information about our officiating courses can be found here.
Check out our courses calendar and sign up to a Level 2 or Level 3 technical course here
No courses in your area? Sign up to attend a course here. When we receive enough interest we will set a course up for you.
Are you a club, league or association and want to organise your own course for females, then follow the instructions here?
