Refereeing is a great way for young basketballers to earn extra summer holiday spending money, receive training in a transferable and flexible job, and develop essential workforce skills, all while improving their knowledge of gameplay and rules and keeping fit.
BBA pays for our junior members to attend courses to obtain their qualifications and provides mentorship and ref coaching for ongoing development. Qualified refs are eligible to ref at Regionals and Country Champs, a fantastic opportunity for learning and earning. Passionate refs can access an elite pathway towards state, national or international competition (there’s more than one way to get to the NBA!).
