Basketball BC/BCBOA Statement on Return to Officiating

by kdr

July 6, 2020


We are starting to see and hear news of basketball training starting up again. However, this
does not mean that approval has been given for basketball games to be played.

Due to the provincial health guidelines for physical distancing, Basketball BC and the BCBOA will
not be approving the assigning of referees until the safety and security of referees and table
officials can be maximized and the Provincial Government Health and Sport authorities activate
a phase of reopening that includes sports competition involving physical contact.

We will keep you informed as new information becomes available, with the continued focus on
moving safely through the COVID-19 issues facing the world. Safety of our BCBOA members
remains the number one priority.

In the interim, we highly recommend that referees consider implementing a personal physical
conditioning plan and registering for the CBOC Webinar series, to help keep body and mind
ready for return to game officiating.
