Another Season in the Books!
Another exciting year of high school hoops officiating culminated with our annual NCBOA Banquet April 10. Thanks to Tony Malone for a delicious lobster feed and Jim Wierzba for hosting the pre-dinner beverage truck festivities! The event also included association officer elections with Mike Wong taking over the presidency from Dino Skoufis, Sean Engmann sliding into the vice-president slot, and Don Collins and Eric Madia continuing in the Secretary and Treasurer positions respectively. Three Executive Committee spots were also voted on with Tony Malone re-elected and Tony Booker and Tiffany Fong as a newcomers to the legislative group. Annual service awards were presented as well with George Ambrosio and Ralph "Pooj" Pujolar topping the list at 40 years!! Finally the annual Erv Delman Rookie of the Year award was bestowed upon co-winners Emily Chow and Randy McLaughlin. And although the major part of our season has ended, there are still many opportunities to stay sharp on the court with recreational leagues and tournaments throughout the spring as well as a number of officiating summer camps to help in advancement to the next level. Check our Camps and Clinics page for a number of these upcoming opportunities. Most of all, enjoy the "off season," and we hope to see all members and maybe some new ones back again this fall!!
Payment Plan for MembersThe NCBOA Executive Committee would like to remind all members of the current method of payment for all games assigned through the Arbiter.

CIF High School Officials Uniform RequirementNCBOA 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.
