Another Season Underway
The scholastic Hoops season has begun! We've all completed the rules clinic and test and now it's time to hit the hardwood. Let's all make sure to remember a few important things as we move through the winter: make partner contact before all assignments, keep those shoes nice and shinny, make sure your availability is regularly updated on the Arbiter, hydrate, always bring an extra whistle, have a good pregame, get plenty of sleep, stretch, and above all.....have fun!!
New Payment Plan for Members
The NCBOA Executive Committee recently instituted a new method of payment for all games assigned through the Arbiter. All officials receiving these games will now be paid via Ref Pay. Check this link for a tutorial detailing how to sign up and manage your Ref Pay account. Games not assigned via the Arbiter will be paid as in the past. Note, those not wishing to be paid via Ref Pay may opt out by notifying NCBOA Treasurer Eric Madia prior to the start of the season. Any officials opting out will be paid with a lump sum check at the end of the season. Any questions regarding this new system should be directed to Eric as well.

CIF High School Officials Uniform Requirement
NCBOA members who officiate at the high school level, please take note of the following. The state rules interpreter, the State CIF, and our local CIF sections have asked us to remind officials that the official and only acceptable officiating shirt to be worn during any NFHS contest is the 'high school' black and white striped shirt. The 'college' style shirt with the larger 3 inch black panel along the seams and underarm is NOT approved for NFHS contests and may not be warn. Please ensure that you comply with this requirement when officiating any NCBOA assigned high school game.
