These education sessions are to prepare volunteers to referee Under 8s games in the Northern Junior Basketball League. The education sessions do not make a volunteer a qualified referee, but will allow volunteers the necessary knowledge and skills to officiate an U8s game.

These positions are voluntary in nature and the payment usually made to referees will be made to the club and the club may choose to reimburse the volunteers for their time.

The education sessions are free of charge.

The session will run for two hours and provide you with all the necessary information to officiate a basketball game for Under 8s.

Anyone over 14 is accepted, but please be mindful that this may be a stressful environment for young people to first officiate, it is recommended that adults do these sessions.

Each team entered in the competition is to provide at least one person to be their dedicated referee for the season, and that person will officiate the home games for their team. A team may enter more than one person to officiate.

If a team wishes to enter their coach as their referee, that is accepted.

The first games being officiated by volunteers that go through this training will be from Week 4 of the schedule.

On game days, there will be a venue supervisor at the stadium for support covering all three courts.
