SBL organising Level 2 referee course

Sheffield Basketball League will be running a Level 2 referee course to start 2019.

The course will be held at All Saints Sports Centre on Saturday January 5 and Sunday January 7 and will be tutored by Pawel Szafraniec.


  • Sat 5 Jan - 9am to 5pm
  • Sun 6 Jan - 10am to 6pm

To become a Level 2 referee candidates are required to complete the course and then complete 3 assessment games, with a Level 3 or higher referee either refereeing alongside or observing.

The course is aimed at beginners who have experience as a player or have attended a Level 1 course. Level 2 referees can officiate local league and junior national league. Candidates will receive a rule book and mechanics book along with a whistle.

Sheffield Basketball League are subsidising the course and there is an expectation that candidates will officiate games within SBL and junior national league games in Sheffield and the surrounding areas.

SBL clubs can secure one place on the course at a discounted rate. If the candidate does not officiate 10 games within SBL in the following 12 months, then the full rate will become payable.

The cost to sign up to the course is £100, which is reduced to £50 if put forward by a team within SBL.

If you wish to pay by cheque, make it payable to Sheffield Basketball League.
