Officiating Resources.

BE READY TO OFFICIATE

 

As the season will soon commence we want to ensure that you have all the information you need to be game ready. On this page you will find resources and documents which will assist you over the course of the season.

 

NBL REGULATIONS & MATCH OFFICIALS HANDBOOK

Below you can access the NBL Regulations and Match Officials Handbook for the current season. Be aware that caveats are in place as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Read all the information on this page to be aware of any adaptions to these documents.

RETURN TO PLAY DOCUMENTS

All officials need to be familiar with our RTP documentation and guidance. Below are documents that specifically refer to officiating and game day procedures. The full RTP page can be found here.

PROACTIVE SYMPTOMS TRACKER

 As part of the ‘Return to Play’ guidance we are asking all officials before travelling to a game to complete a self-assessment with regards to COVID-19.

Prior to 10am on any game day we request that you complete the self-assessment using the link below. This will ask you to confirm whether you have had any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 to ensure that it is safe for you to attend your assignments.

The person responsible for checking your temperature before entering the venue will also ask you to show the email confirmation ensuring that you are able to participate on that day. 

Return to Play FAQs

What time should I arrive to my game? +

The RTP guidance states that officials should be on court at 20 minutes prior to the scheduled tip-off time. Before this officials will need to go through the screening process outside of the venue so we would recommend arriving around 30 minutes prior to the scheduled tip-off time unless otherwise specified in a team's Game Logistics Form.

What do I do if I haven't received the Game Logistics Form? +

You should receive the Game Logistics Form via email from the home team for any game you are officiating at least 7 days before the fixture.

If this hasn't happened you should contact the home club to request the form. Contact details for NBL1 and WNBL1 clubs can be found within the Match Officials Handbook.

If you still have not received the documentation 3 days before the fixture please contact competitions@basketballengland.co.uk.
