CAMP EXPERIENCE

OUR MISSION

Below are some of the elements that you will experience at Camp:

Classroom Sessions
The Class Room Sessions give students a chance to listen to and interact with different staff members on a wide variety of subjects. Typically, during the opening welcome classroom session we will go through staff and student introductions. Following the welcome, we dive right into discussions on officiating:  Topics include:

Floor positioning  
Rotations
Mechanics
Floor Coverage
Expectations of Campers
Question and Answers
Games
Typically each referee will do 1 to 2 games per day.  Each game is observed by at least one NBA referee.  The NBA referee observing the game will do much more than just watch.  They are there to provide immediate feedback and instruction.  The feedback is not designed to criticize but to help you improve.

Video Review
After each game the officiating crew will go to a separate video room to review the game (if the facility being used has video taping capabilities).  During the review, an NBA referee will sit with the crew to provide feedback and instruction.  Video review is one of the most important aspects to referee development. You will learn how to break down a game tape like the pros. Taking notes during the video review will give you an opportunity to provide your own re-fresher course after camp has ended. An officiating Journal is a must for continued review and career progress.
