Referee Development Programs

Referees are an integral part of the sport of basketball and Moreton Bay Basketball, and are necessary for them to both continue to thrive. We are always on the lookout for more referees and try to give everyone a go. However, it’s not as simple as that. Refereeing can be challenging as well as physically and mentally demanding. Even though, what you get out of being a referee far outweighs what you put in, refereeing is not for everyone.

Referee Pathways

Moreton Bay Basketball has dedicated to the development and improvement of referees within the association. Our focus is to work with our referees to continually improve and to enable pathways for them, whatever their ultimate goal may be. Moreton Bay Basketball works closely with Basketball Queensland to maintain and enhance its referee program to ensure our program complies with state and national standards.

With Moreton Bay Basketball domestic competitions being held year round, and teams entered into BQJBC and SBL, opportunities are always available for those looking to become a referee or scoretable official.

Moreton Bay Basketball will also periodically run referee courses to aid in progression through the Basketball Queensland pathway, in line with Basketball Australia’s officials development framework.
