Purpose of the Camp:

The camp is specifically designed for both men and women's basketball officials who:

  • Already officiate in the EBL (National League) but want to enhance their officiating skills with a view to Level 4 selection;
  • Aspire to officiate in the EBL;
  • Wish to officiate better quality games locally, regionally and nationally;
  • Wish to upgrade to the Level 3 award for officials.

The camp will provide an opportunity to learn and understand the culture of national league basketball and how to maintain "staying power" to progress at a Senior level.
