SBOC Education

The Saskatchewan Basketball Officials Commission (SBOC) is working with our National Governing Body (CBOC) to ensure that officials in our province have access to the standardized certification system (NOCP) that allows officials to maintain accreditation across the country. In addition to the NOCP, we offer opportunities for communities or organizations to host clinics that provide supplemental knowledge to the NOCP.  Examples of these clinics are: Intro to Officiating for Youth Officials, Rules Refresher Clinics, and IOT’s clinics.

If you are interested in finding out more about the NOCP or our supplemental offerings please contact our Director of Education, Dale Reed at dereed@sasktel.net

If you are a current Level 1 or Higher official interested in setting up an evaluation in order to move through the levels within the NOCP, please contact our Director of Advancement, Brad Smith.

NOTES:

Type of Clinic

  1. New – the clinic will be set up to provide foundational knowledge and skills for new officials wanting to start their basketball officiating career, or for an inexperienced official wanting to refresh their understanding of basketball officiating. This clinic typically covers the rules, their interpretations, and the floor mechanics. It may involve some on-floor officiating in scrimmage games.
  2. Refresher – the clinic will provide newer and experienced officials a refresher on key rules and mechanics and review any new rules and mechanics FIBA has instituted. There will be a classroom session and may include an on-floor review of key mechanics. There may also be a review of possible questions for the exam preparation.

Open/Closed:

  1. Open – refers to a clinic with the allowance of all individuals wanting to begin or continue to officiate basketball within Saskatchewan. Conditions, such as vaccination requirements may be instituted for one’s attendance at a clinic.
  2. Closed – refers to a clinic limiting its attendance to a specific group of attendees. A specific group of attendees are marked for this particular clinic.
