The role of the referee coach is important in the on going development of young referees. Rule knowledge is the foundation of a good referee but experience and continual feedback helps to mould and develop young referees and enhance their on court performance.
Each year, a range of training programs are conducted which are specifically designed for referee coaches and cater for the beginner coach through to the very experienced referee coach. Our approach to referee coaching is based around providing an environment of continual development and support. Hills Basketball is seen as leader in Australia for developing new and innovative programs and ways to recruit, train and develop referee coaches.
Hills Basketball has an established group of Referee Curriculum Coaches (RCC) who observe and assess referees throughout our local competition program.
