Officials Hub


The recruitment, development and retention of basketball referees and score table officials is vital for the game of basketball at all levels.

Referees and score table officials are a crucial part of our sport. Quite simply, without the officials, there is no game! We welcome any new referees and officials – whether you’re wanting to give back to your community, keep fit and active or simply learn more about the game. Alongside our associations, we will work to develop your skills at all levels of the game.

In these pages, you’ll find information on the pathways for referees and referee trainers, and how to get started as a referee. You’ll also find a variety of officiating resources.
