Referees are such an important part of the game as the game cannot take place without them so we are constantly developing new referees for all levels of the game within our region as well as for Basketball New Zealand tournaments.

Our process for new referees is:

  1. Take part in our two part Intro/Beginner Referee Course

  2. At least one term of training in our Primary/Intermediate leagues

  3. Achieve Level 1 Criteria in order to be remunerated

Upcoming Courses
