EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST NOW OPEN FOR THE NEXT GREEN SHIRT REFEREE PROGRAM
Mildura Basketball are on the look out for our next crop of referees!
The Green Shirt program is a nationally recognized program developed as a way to easily identify and protect the learner official. Simply put it means that if you see officials wearing a green referee shirt it is important to understand they are beginners and are “learning on the job”. The aim of the Green Shirt Program is to:
Make new officials easily identifiable, so that they are easy to recognise and support.
Promote this program to the basketball community to raise awareness and increase the recognition and support of new officials
Assist in reducing pressure and lessening abuse and conflict directed towards new officials. Create a culture of support towards these new officials via the education of players, spectators, coaches and the media.
The message for the program, “I‘m wearing green so please don’t see red” simply means that if you see officials wearing a green referee shirt then it is important for you to know they are beginners and as a “learner” they may make more mistakes than normal.
