Basketball is truly “everyone’s game” and there are many different ways that you can get involved from being a “fan” of the sport to actively participating as a player, coach, or technical official.
The role of the technical officials is to ensure the game is played in a fair and safe manner and within the rules. Refereeing is the most physical active as they are on-court and “call” the game.

Basketball is an international game with 214 countries playing the game. This means that for those technical officials with the interest and expertise there is a pathway to national and international representation!
