Referees are such an important part of the game as the game cannot take place without them so we are constantly developing new referees for all levels of the game within our region as well as for Basketball New Zealand tournaments. If you would like to become a referee please register your interest by emailing

Our process for new referees is:

  1. Take part in a Kiwi Hoops or Community Referee Course
  2. One term of training in our Primary/Intermediate leagues
  3. Achieve Level 1 Criteria to be able to be paid and be given a grey referee shirt & shorts

Upcoming Referee Courses

We will have two referee courses over the next few weeks, the course comes in two parts. For those who just want to understand the game a bit more then only the course is required. For those who wish to be involved as a referee in our leagues there is a second session which they will need to attend. 

We have just completed the Kiwi Hoops course and will post new course dates soon!
