BQ Elite Referee Programs

 

Overview

Basketball Queensland (BQ) currently runs two development programs to progress our identified referees towards higher levels of basketball – State Referee Development Program (SRDP) and National Referee Development Program (NRDP).

The SRDP was introduced in 2015-16 to further assist in providing development pathways to our State’s referees and forms an underpinning program to our NRDP, providing an advanced pathway for referees from Advanced Grade through to their State Grade (Level 2). This feeds into NRDP’s purpose of identifying and developing officials with the potential to be a referee at national/international level.

State Referee Development Program

Referees who progress through the SRDP should (upon graduating) have achieved a level of knowledge and experience to be in contention for selection to the Under 14 National Junior Club Championships, as well as being considered for progression into the NRDP in future years.

To be eligible for selection to the SRDP an official must:

- Be an active official with your local association, officiating at least 8 games per month, as well as officiating junior representative basketball;

- Have been invited to attend Under 16 and/or Under 18 State Championships in the preceeding year to the SRDP intake;

- Have demonstrated a professional and commendable attitude to their refereeing;

- Be aged between 15 and 24; and

- Currently graded as either an Advanced or Representative Grade referee (note: Intermediate Grade referees will be considered on a case-by-case basis).

Officials who are selected to SRDP will be involved in regular Training & Development sessions, in conjunction with their junior representative (BQJBC) commitments, as well as continuing to be available for State events.

National Referee Development Program

NRDP exists to identify and develop officials with the potential to referee at national/international level. The desirable pathway for the referee is to progress through NRDP and (upon graduating) to have achieved a level of knowledge and experience to be in contention for selection to the Under 20 National Junior Championships.

To be eligible for selection to the NRDP an official must:

- Be an active official with your local association, officiating a minimum of eight (8) games per month;

- Have attended the NBL1 Referee Conference in the year preceeding the NRDP intake and have passed the theory and fitness tests;

- Currently officiating senior representative basketball (NBL1 and/or QSL);

- Currently officiating junior representative basketball (BQJBC);

- Have demonstrated a professional and commendable attitude to their refereeing;

- Be aged between 18 and 29; and

- Currently graded as a State Grade referee.

Officials who are selected to NRDP will be required to attend regular monthly meetings of the group, attend and be involved with regular Training & Development sessions (such as Master Class), and continue to be available for State events.

NRDP members will also be expected to continue to officiate in senior and junior representative basketball, as well as being available for Junior State Championships in an officiating and/or referee coaching capacity. Throughout their involvement, NRDP members will officiate with and be mentored by senior NBL/WNBL officials to help gain additional experience and training throughout their involvement with the program.

NRDP members will be required to demonstrate superior rule knowledge of the game and will be instructed and assessed regularly in this area. NRDP members will also be expected to maintain a good level of physical fitness throughout their involvement.
