Help your local club and Basketball Wales...become a referee or table official
Officiating is a great way to make new friends, build your confidence and participate in basketball. Throughout Wales there are many school matches, local and regional league competitions, all of which need officials for the games to take place.
To be an active official you need to be qualified and licensed. You should also make sure you are officiating in leagues that are affiliated to Basketball Wales to ensure your insurance is valid. Details of how to licence as an Official can be found in the Downloads section.
Basketball Wales runs a number of officiating courses throughout the year. Level 1 courses are normally held at the start of each season (September) at locations in North and South Wales. Candidates who wish to move up a level are requested to download the appropriate application form and submit the completed form along with the course payment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure you read the course criteria before you apply. All information relating to Basketball Wales Officiating courses can be found in the Downloads section of this website.
