Like any sport, there is no game with-out officials. Along with strong player and coaching development within USC Basketball, junior referee development is a priority for the growth of the association and basketball participation on the Sunshine Coast. The success has seen strong growth in the junior referee team at USC Basketball with youth as young as 9 learning the skills and responsibility to officiate a good game. On this success, we are seeing kids from the USC Basketball team graduate to be recognised in state and national referee development programs. The success of the junior referee development program is putting USC Basketball and basketball more generally on a good foundation to flourish in the future.
Value to the Community
In addition to being part of a vibrant sports club that promotes long-term athlete development and life-long participation in sports, our young referees learn important skills and responsibility that come with the job of a referee.
Why the funds are needed
It is a requirement that club referee programs have their own uniform independent of the state referee uniforms. Our young program has now designed a basic uniform for the referees but we are looking for ways to avoid the added cost to the referees who put their hand up to develop their skills as a referee. The funds will go towards the purchase of an initial uniform for our 70 junior club referees
