Proactive Referee Officiating Camp is a three day intensive basketball referee camp for highly motivated individuals who desire to reach higher levels of basketball officiating. This is a great opportunity to prepare for upcoming camps from which a referee is looking to get hired onto a conference staff.  NBA and high level NCAA officials will offer elite knowledge through classroom sessions, live games, postgame video breakdowns, that can significantly help referees separate themselves from the pack. Proactive Referee Officiating Camp will give you one-on-one access to some of the most high-level collegiate and professional officials in the game of basketball. If you’re looking to be the best, you have to learn from the best.


Proactive Referee Officiating Camp will focus on Three Person mechanics, the foundation for referees looking to get to the next level in their careers.
Teaching presentation topics will include:
  • Positioning
  • Play Calling
  • Game Management
  • Court Presence
  • Communication
  • Professionalism
  • Leadership
  • Video Analysis
  • Partnering
  • Court Presence
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Game Preparation
  • Mental Conditioning

Comprehensive video review sessions with a staff member will follow each game. These small group settings will provide valuable opportunities to reflect on your work and to identify areas to improve in your future games. You will also witness firsthand how a veteran official breaks down videotape for genuine self-improvement, not just mere call validation.

  • Striped referee jerseys
  • Black referee pants
  • Referee shoes
  • Whistle
