SESSION I  at Sonoma State University            2 person and 3 person High School
Emphasis will be on 2 & 3 Person High School positioning, mechanics and game management. Perfect for officials who are 1-5 years experience. The staff will consist of college and top level high school officials, observers and trainers from throughout Northern California. This Academy is offered in conjunction with the Sonoma State University Boys High School Varsity Team Camp.  

SESSION II  at Santa Clara University               3 person only
Join a select handpicked staff for a different concept and approach in basketball officiating instruction. The Academy is your opportunity to experience what it takes to do more than just survive as a basketball official. The California basketball Officiating Academy is specifically designed to help you improve. Dave Libbey has personally put together the curriculum which is founded on the NBA, WCC, Pac 12, and Big West training philosophies. If you are looking for a camp where you can show off your skills and get hired, the Academy is probably not the place for you. This experience will provide you the knowledge and skills needed to improve and advance your current officiating career. The Academy will benefit both men and women at all levels of officiating and will be especially beneficial to board members and the instructional leaders of your local association. 

Will we have Div. I officials and observers working at the Academy? Yes, but they are there to help you get better with your current game. If you are serious about getting better, then the Academy is the place for you to be this June. Participants have the opportunity to take the skills learned in sessions and try them out in high school varsity level basketball games for 2-person and 3-person crews. This Academy is offered in conjunction with the Santa Clara University Boys High School Varsity Team Camp.  

Each camp includes:
Video Taping    Video Review      Clinics        Court Clinics       Games        Game Mgmt. Seminar

NOTE: These camps are not affiliated with any local Refereeing association, and we can not guarantee you a better schedule next season.  With that said, to get better officials need to work games in a controlled environment and receive relevant feedback to help you get better.  If you are looking for an ego stroke or to be told how good you are, please don’t register... However, if you are a referee who wants to improve... you will get something to make you better!
