The BNIOC will be hosting a one day seminar for officials in Belfast for the start of the new season. The day will consist of classroom and practical work, with a Mens Premier game at 16.30 that will be refereed by the seminar officials.
Basketball Northern Ireland Referees Pre-Season Seminar
Sat 15th September 2012
12.00 – 18.00
De La Salle College, Belfast, BT11 8LT
The seminar is aimed specifically at those who cannot attend the National Conference, but still want to improve their refereeing. There will be updates on the new rules and their implementation, a presentation of the points of emphasis for basketball referees in NI, and also work on mechanics and court positioning.
During the Mens Premier game – 8 referees (2 per qtr) will referee and receive instant feedback on their mechanics and interpretation of referee criteria.
Please remember that this day is being run for the benefit of basketball as a whole and your attendance will not only improve your refereeing, but hopefully the experience of players, coaches and spectators through your enhanced knowledge.
There is no cost to this seminar and the more people that attend the more benefit that is returned.
If you have any questions, or you will be attending, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
