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.
