So...you'd like to learn to referee? Bankstown Basketball Association runs regular Learn to Ref courses for people of all ages - from the young (ages 12 to 16) to the young at heart (adults of all ages).

 Our next courses are as follows:

Junior (age 12-16) 

 

Junior Referees School (for ages 12 to 16) teaches the basics of refereeing - on-court positions, calling fouls and violations, and administering the game - in a classroom situation, and then you get to go out on court in one of our various competitions to learn the practical side of refereeing.

Junior Refs' School runs for approximately 8 weeks of 90 minute sessions, which involve class teaching and on-court sessions. Currently referee school runs twice a year on either a Monday afternoon or Saturday morning.

The cost to enrol in Junior Refs' School is $40.00, which includes: FOX40 whistle, rule book, and notes for the course.
