Where can refereeing take me?

Basketball Australia is the body in charge of the referee development framework in Australia, and each state and territory is then responsible for teaching that framework. Below is Basketball Australia’s representation of referee pathway in Australia. Referee courses are run throughout the year, with development pathways in place to allow career progression from junior club basketball to seniors and right through to the international level of officiating.
You can check out the Basketball Australia Referee website for more information on where refereeing can take you:
