Nunawading Basketball recognises the power of empowering females with the opportunity to develop confidence and conviction in themselves. They believe there are many barriers to females, particularly young females, becoming a referee.
One of those is the group interview when filled with many males in the room. Because of this, they have decided to run an all female referee group interview for those wanting to try out to become a referee.
They are inviting any female at least 14 years old to apply and attend their ALL FEMALE REFEREE GROUP INTERVIEW 3.30-5.30PM THIS SUNDAY 23RD APRIL to potentially become a referee and join our team already with strong female leadership.
Don't miss out - their next referee intake after this will be in July 2023 and open to everyone.
Refereeing gives players the unique perspective to understand the game from another angle and can be a great way to improve your playing game.
There are plenty of other reasons to become a Nunawading Basketball referee too:
1. Develop skills in confidence, decision making, leadership and teamwork
2. Participate in the sport in a new capacity
3. Help raise the standard of the game and the Nunawading competition
4. Develop a new group of friends across all ages
5. Be paid to be involved in the sport and stay fit
Referee Training - Referees are an important part of the game, and their training program is one of the best in the country ensuring each trainee has a dedicated mentor and a thorough training process over 4 - 10 weeks until you are comfortable and independent. The training period usually takes around 40 matches in total, so the number of times training per week can speed up the number of weeks required.
Course Cost - The course costs $100 which includes a green referee training shirt, learning materials, whistle and lanyard. The theory component of the course will be online, however, there is an application process, and anyone wanting to try out must attend this group session.
