Table Official Level 1


Attention to Basketball Officials

Grey Little Snitch

We have managed to put a deal together that, we think, you won't be able to resist.
Membership for the season is £25 for referees and £15 for table officials. Members who are both referees and table officials pay £35.

So, what do you get for that? Well, referees get a new London Region referee shirt, and a Fox 40 whistle. Table Officials get a new red London Region Polo shirt and a four colour pen.

Also, all members get two tickets to go to all London Lions home games this season, so that you can see how it's done at the top level. If you can get to the Copper Box, this, on its own, is worth many times the membership fee. If you can only get to one game over the course of the season, you will have recovered your entire membership fee, without including any of the other goodies. As LABO is primarily concerned with the improvement of officials, there will also be seminars and meetings for members, with guest speakers, every 4 - 6 weeks or so throughout the season and opportunities to have your games recorded, with supportive feedback to help with your development. As well as all this, members will get discounts for all LABO-organised courses.

 So, how do you join? The easiest way is to include your LABO membership fee with your Basketball England registration, if you register through the London Region Registrar, Peter Dyke. Otherwise you can transfer your membership fee to the London Region bank account:

Bank Name: HSBC
Account name: London Basketball Group
Sort code: 40-06-21

Good luck for this season and I hope you all take this fantastic opportunity to advance your officiating career.
