Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you have a true passion for basketball?
  • When watching college and professional basketball, do you find yourself breaking down referee calls on the court?
  • Do you watch the referees and their calls more than the players when watching games in person?
  • Are you able to watch a game objectively without rooting interests?
  • Are you committed to do whatever it takes to become a high school basketball referee and help make a difference in New Jersey high school hoops officiating?

If you answered YES to any of these questions - you obviously came here for a reason, and that is to become a proud future member of IAABO Board 33!

 

In order to join our organization, you must be able to commit to and meet 100% of the requirements set forth for the Board 33 Referee Training Program.

2023 Special Olympics Games


We are still actively seeking volunteers to officiate games for the Special Olympics of New Jersey Spring Festival of Sports. Now that the holidays are behind us and the season is in full swing, maybe it's time to start thinking about what we can do to give back to the sport we love. Why not consider volunteering to officiate a few games for Special Olympics of New Jersey Spring Festival of Sports?


The SONJ season started strong on January 15th and will continue to run through March 5th, with games every Sunday at two locations, in Clifton and Old Bridge, from 9AM until around 1-2PM. Then on Saturday and Sunday, March 11th and 12th, they host the Regional Playoffs to select the teams which will participate in the Spring Festival Finals down in Wildwood. With two courts at each site, you can see that it adds up to a lot of games, and a lot of whistles, if we are to pull it off successfully.


Board 33 continues to be the primary source of officials for all of the games for the North (Clifton) and East (Old Bridge) regions, while Boards 34 and 193 cover the South and Central Regions respectively. All in all, the IAABO boards from New Jersey cover hundreds of games, providing a safe and fair competition for the amazing athletes of SONJ. And you can be part of it.


To volunteer, all you have to do is pick dates and times that you are available on the registration form stating when you would like to work. The tentative schedule of games is shown on the registration form and gets updated weekly as the folks at SONJ plan the week's matchups.


Once you send in your availability, someone will reach out to confirm your slot(s). Then all you have to do is show up. Although it's not advisable, you can even just drop in some Sunday at either location and run a few games. We're easy!


These games are for the most part low key and slow paced. We try to run three person mechanics when we have the manpower, so nobody gets worn out. We do have a cadre of regulars who come every single week to work a bunch of games, but with almost 900 members in Board 33, we shouldn't have to rely on them every week.


So think about it. We guarantee that it will be a pleasant experience, one that will help make the day for some very special people and their guardians. One that may change the way you look at life and the game of basketball. We hope you choose to be on the SONJ courts soon.

NJSIAA Pregame Sportsmanship Anti-Bias Statement - Revised

 

Effective with the Winter 2021-22 season, the following statement from the NJSIAA must be read before all sanctioned high school games, regardless of level:

The NJSIAA requires officials to enforce all rules regarding unsportsmanlike conduct by coaches and players. There will be no tolerance for any negative behavior, such as taunting, trash-talking and verbal, written, or physical conduct related to race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or religion. Such behavior will result in being ejected from this event. All participants must respect the game, respect the officials, and respect their opponents.
