Delbrook Steve Nash Referee Program

Thanks for your interest in the referee program.

We are accepting referee applications for the 2018-2019 season until June 30. Those applying after the deadline will be placed on a waitlist and contacted if a position becomes available. 
Applications will be reviewed by the referee coordinator in late August if additional referees are required. The target audience for this program is youth who live on the North Shore and are aged 13 - 19 years.
The first referee clinic is expected to be held in early September.
The referee position is the only paid position with the league. To be considered for a referee position, candidates must be at least 13 years old and demonstrate:
  • A good level of fitness and conditioning with an interest and background in the game of basketball.
  • Confidence to blow the whistle loudly, make calls with authority and clearly communicate calls (verbally and visually) to players, coaches and score keepers.
  • Professionalism to manage the dynamics, passion and energy of players, coaches and spectators.
  • Knowledge of game rules and willingness to continuously develop with ongoing training and referee clinics.
  • Commitment to show up and be on time for scheduled games (most games are Saturday afternoons and most of Sundays).
Please note: Preference for new recruits will go to current / former Delbrook Steve Nash players who already know our league and love the game of basketball.
