FAQ: BECOMING A REFEREE
Why should I become a referee?
There are so many reasons to become a referee including:
Earn money and work flexible hours
Be physically active and get fit
Be involved in basketball (especially if you love the game)
Gain a better understanding of basketball and its rules
Meet new people, make new friends and share many great experiences
Improve your life skills (e.g. communication, independence, confidence, decision making and awareness)
How much time is involved?
This is dependent entirely on you.
Trainees are required to attend 4 theory sessions and referee at least one day per week for approximately 7 weeks.
Qualified referees can choose a permanent position on a roster or a casual/emergency referee on any shift. Shifts run every day of the week
What age do I have to be to start training as a referee?
Any new children wishing to be a referee, must be 12 years of age when the first theory session starts of each school.
How much does a referee get paid?
It varies on the grade of the referee and whether it is a senior or junior competition. Payments range from $4 through to $25 per game.
I was once a qualified referee and would like to come back, what do I do?
Mildura Basketball is looking to get people back into refereeing who may have stopped for for any reason and are now able to get back on court. Whether you stopped 2 or 10 years ago we are happy to work with you, to upskill you with the changes to the game and get you on court.
