Help the Game: Referee Recruitment and Engagement
Here at basketballscotland, we are passionate about growing the game of basketball across all levels, and to do this, we need to play as much basketball as possible, and this can’t be done without our officials.
The shortage of referees has a significant impact on both local and national competitions. Addressing this issue promptly is a high priority to us, and we firmly believe that the most effective solution is to collaborate with our community.
Therefore, we are actively seeking individuals who share our passion and are willing to get involved and contribute to the game. This includes individuals such as former qualified referees who can cover local games on a periodic basis, current players who are open to lending their assistance, and even students seeking to earn some extra income by refereeing a few games each week. We truly believe that every person who steps forward to support us will be an invaluable asset, and no contribution will be considered too small.
Regardless of whether you have prior experience as a referee or not, if you possess knowledge and understanding of the game, can communicate effectively, and are eager to learn, you have the potential to make a significant impact in growing the sport. Our focus is not solely on finding the next international referee, though we are always delighted to support individuals with such aspirations. Our primary aim is to ensure that games can proceed by securing individuals who are willing to give up their time.
As an organization, we are wholeheartedly committed to making your involvement as easy as possible by removing any barriers that may stand in your way. We will provide comprehensive support tailored to your needs, offer the necessary training and equipment, and ensure that you are connected to games in an environment where you can continue to learn and thrive. We understand that starting as a referee may be daunting, so we are ready to provide guidance and support during your early experiences.
Together, by working hand in hand with the community, we are confident that we can overcome the shortage of referees and guarantee the uninterrupted progression of the sport. Basketball is more than just a game to us; it’s a passion we want to share and spread far and wide. Join us on this journey to make a lasting impact on the future of basketball!
