Thank you for your interest in becoming a basketball official! The NCBOA is actively seeking both new and experienced officials 18 years or older to join our organization for the 2016-17 high school basketball season.
The NCBOA will be hosting a six-week training program (one night per week) for new applicants to the Association beginning in September 2016. The sessions will be held from 5:30-8:30pm at a location TBA. This program is designed for officials who are new to high school basketball, for veteran officials who need to refresh their understanding of high school rules and mechanics and for any officials interested in gaining a better grasp on the fundamentals of high school officiating. At the conclusion of the training course, all new applicants will participate in a floor demonstration in front of the NCBOA Executive Committee and Assignors who will decide whether or not to offer you membership into the NCBOA and what types of assignments to offer you.
The application fee is $75, which covers the cost of the training course. Should you be offered and accept membership into the NCBOA, $20 of your application fee will be applied toward your membership dues for the 2016-17 basketball season. If you are an experienced high school official, you may be eligible to skip the training course and proceed directly to the floor demonstration based on a review of your application, but you are still responsible for the full application fee.
