Things to

Consider (1/4)

Physical Demands

Basketball officials are moving constantly. There are no opportunities for rest while play is ongoing because basketball officials need to adjust their positions constantly to see the action as player positions shift. You will run extensively during a competitive basketball game. All of our games take place indoors with Air Conditioning but because of the activity level, hydration is something basketball officials really take seriously. As the players you're officiating get older and the competitive levels increase, the physical demands also increase. You could be officiating many different age groups throughout the tournament.

All inquiries/info submitted in the form above will be directed to

All matters regarding officiating/officials should be directed to Eric West directly at the contact information above.
