Jr. Basketball Referee Program (Ages 14-15)

We are looking for young people to blow the whistle and enforce the rules of the game. The Jr. Referee Program is an opportunity for basketball enthusiasts to start their work as an official in a supportive and engaging environment. Participants will complete two training sessions before the season begins and will hone their skills while working with our youngest leagues as Jr. Refs, helping players as they learn the rules, connect with their teammates and develop their skills. Jr. Refs will complete at least four 4-hour game day sessions on the court with a mentor official throughout the season. Once the initial program has been completed, Jr. Refs will have the opportunity to continue into the winter season as a volunteer official. Jr. Refs are eligible to be hired as Youth Sports Officials for the Y when they turn 16.
