PURPOSE: The Next Step Officiating Camp will cover the instruction of both the 2-person and 3-person officiating systems. The camp will be separated into 2-person and 3-person. This camp will provide an opportunity for officials to learn, improve and advance in their officiating careers. The 2-person camp will be geared for newer officials (1-3 years).
SITE: The Next Step Officiating Camp will be held July 31-Aug. 1(with optional July 30 added) at Mass Premier Courts in Foxboro, MA. The camp will be held in conjunction with a High School Varsity Team invitational tournament. All basketball officials, both male and female, are invited to attend.
FORMAT: Camp will run all day on Saturday (games ending by early evening.) and will end Sunday afternoon. Friday games will be late afternoon and evening. For officials in the 3-man camp this will be an opportunity to learn and improve on 3-man mechanics, and for officials in the 2- man camp to improve their skills in all areas to help them advance more rapidly. There will be an outstanding 5:1 official to observer ratio. This will give you a great deal of individual attention.
COST: The cost of the camp will be $175($225 if you want to add Fri) and is non-refundable.
GAMES: All games will be played indoors on air-conditioned courts using National Federation rules. All officials will work at least 6 games (2-3 additional on Fri). Every official will be videotaped and receive a copy with an observer’s voice over at least once.
CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION: Classroom instruction will be used to go over mechanics, both 2 and 3 man, and discuss game situations, rule interpretations, and to answer all questions. Veteran high school and collegiate officials will be on hand as observers, and to discuss how they have progressed through the officiating ranks.
