are invited to attend.  Enrollment will be limited to the first

PURPOSE

provide a more efficient system for the advancement of
aspiring basketball officials.  This camp provides a great
opportunity for officials to advance to varsity level with
local high school assigners.  This camp could be
instrumental in helping officials reach their goals for
inroads into the collegiate level as well.

changes must be approved prior to arrival.  Officials will
be under constant supervision during the camp and are
required to fully participate during the camp.

provide an excellent opportunity for individual
attention enhancing your mechanics and experience.

skills, techniques, and advance your career within a
3-man officiating crew.

non-refundable deposit is required.  Payment is
