Candidates will need to make arrangements to pay the course fee before the course starts. Candidates can apply for a grant to the Ian Pollard Development Fund. Clubs, leagues, universities or other organisations can submit a request to sponsor their own candidates.
Observers: We welcome coaches, teachers, or any individual with an interest in officiating who would like to attend this course as an observer ie. Not sitting the exam. Observers do not need to pay the fee. You will need to notify us with at least 5 working days notice that you are planning to attend.
For further information, please contact us on email@example.com
The course lasts 2 days. It will consist on both classroom time (10 to 2pm both days) and practice on the basketball court (2pm to 5:30pm or 6pm) both days. Candidates will need to bring sports clothes and a Fox whistle. If they do not have one, we can provide one for £7. Candidates can purchase an official shirt; please let us know on time of your size. The shirts are £30 each.
Candidates will need to sit the exam on the second day, 1 hour time allocated. They will also need to pass a practical test. After these two tests, they have 1 year to pass 3 assessments in an official basketball competition by a level 3, or 4 referee.
Candidates can re-sit the exam once within 1 year period.
The Official Basketball Rules (2014), candidates will get a hard copy on the first day. The exam will consist on 50 questions about the rules, candidates must have 35 correct (70%).
I will email mock exams and the answers so candidates can test their knowledge of the rules. If you could please let me know of your attendance at your earliest as I need to purchase the materials.
Please let us know of any health condition that may affect your attendance to the course.
Funding of the course
We are not involved in the decision-making process for grants (Ian Pollard Development Fund). If you wish to apply for a grant, I advise to send the application to them at your earliest.
We run a development programme in London for both basketball referees and table officials. We work with other leagues (BCS, AoC, BUCS) and the federation, Basketball England. We also work with the Great Britain Wheelchair Basketball Association.
Any individual who wishes to attend the course as an observer (ie. not sitting the exam), they can do so free of charge. You will let us know of your intentions with as much notice as possible, preferably a week notice. You can purchase the FIBA Basketball Rules and/or the Mechanics Book.
