Basketball Referee Training Course

Want to make money and learn more about the game you love? Teens and adults are invited to learn how to be a fair, competent referee in this three-week intensive course. Led by veteran coach Ralph Lardieri, this course will have you ready just in time for the elementary school season. Plus, you’ll earn back your investment by working only three games!

Referees who have completed the course and purchased the uniform are welcome to referee Nether-Swarthmore Hoops games all season long. Referees in eighth grade and above are invited to ref our second- and third-grade division. Referees in high school are invited to ref our fourth- through eighth-grade divisions. Adults are invited to ref all three. We will work with you to get you games. SRA pays $40 per game for non-tournament play.

Please note that this course will make you a master of the rules and a fair and even-handed ref. It will not, however, make you PIAA certified. For that, you will also need to take a written exam (for which the course will help prepare you).

WHO: Future Hoops referees. Players in eighth grade and adults are welcome.

WHEN: Sundays, 3:00-6:00, October 02, 09, and 16, 2022

WHERE: SRS; the first class will be held in the cafeteria, and the remaining two will be in the gym

REGISTRATION FEE: $120 (the cost of refereeing three games)
