Trusted Officials Live OR Virtual Rookie Clinics for Rookie/In-House Officials  

Buddy Hemric is the Associate Director of the MYAS and has 30+ years of experience as a youth basketball league official and high school basketball referee.  Buddy will be able to “tell it like it is” and what it will be like when you hit the court. Buddy will make sure that you are prepared to do the job right the first time.

These two- to three-hour clinics will be conducted by knowledgeable, veteran basketball officials who truly care about the game and the young athletes who play.

These clinics will feature:

  • updated information on rules.
  • psychology of being a good official.
  • working with different partners.
  • effective communication with players and coaches.
  • proper positioning and mechanics.
  • game management.
  • preventive officiating.
  • interpretation and application of rules.
  • situation awareness.

$225.00 per association

This officials’ training course is just $10.00 with a certificate of completion given to every official who satisfactorily completes the test and course.
