Basketball Camps for Women’s Officials

March 31, 2014 -Letter From Chris Kelly

Basketball RefereeGood Evening. Your hard work and professionalism really paid off this season. I had fewer complaints about officials this year than any other in the past 10 years. With a few exceptions, you were on time, in proper uniform and called the games according to the guidelines set forth by the NCAA and NYSGBOA. Most of you were approachable when coaches had questions about specific calls and their feedback about it was very positive. Thank you to those officials who went out every game and did the best they could for the young women basketball players of NYC.

Looking forward, you should be setting goals for yourself for next season and beyond. Whether you are new to officiating girls’ high school basketball or you are a veteran moving towards the twilight of your career, one of the ways you can achieve your goals is by attending a camp. Take a look at all the camps available to you and go to at least one.

Some of the more obvious benefits of camp:

  • Getting honest feedback from clinicians
  • Networking with other officials
  • Video evaluation
  • Being seen and evaluated by assignors and supervisors

    There is never an “off season” for an official. Camps are one of the best ways to “work on your game”.
