CYA Basketball Referee Training

Winter 2015-16 Spring 2016


Winter 2015-16 and Spring 2016

CYA Basketball uses youth officials to referee house basketball in the winter program for Grades 2-8 and in the spring program for Grades 4-8. Officials can be either adults or youth aged 13 (and in 8th grade) and above. Winter games will begin early December and Spring games at the beginning of April.

Officials are paid between $10-$25 per game, depending upon experience and the age level of those playing in the game. A whistle and uniform shirts will be provided. Experienced officials are also needed for our mentoring program and will be paid to work with our newer referees.

In order to officiate for the CYA basketball program you must be at least 13 years of age and must attend the required training sessions. New and 2nd and 3rd grade refs from last year must attend 2 sessions. The first will be held Saturday October 17th from 12:00 to 2:00 at Rocky Run and the second session to be held on November 15th (Time and gym to be determined.) returning experienced refs will be asked to attend a training session November 15. (Time and gym to be determined)

NOTE: Games for grades 9-12 (Boys and Girls) are officiated by semi-professional referees provided by the Cardinal Basketball Officiating Association.
