Referee Registration

Referee Registration is OPEN

The Great Falls Basketball Referee Program welcomes all participants 7th grade and older wishing to become a Referee for the 2018-19 Winter Basketball season.  Applicants to be a first-time referee should be in grades 7-9.

This is a well established program that gives young adults a chance to build leadership skills while also getting paid.  

All Referees MUST register using the instructions below no later than Friday Sept 28th.  We have a new scheduling and payment system this year so we need ALL referees to register, regardless of the number of years they have been a part of the GFHoops Referee program.

In order to become a Referee we require that all participants new to the program (i.e. did not referee in a prior year) be in grades 7-9 and require such participants to attend 3 training sessions.  These training sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings between Oct 10th and Nov 10th and participants can attend any 3 of the sessions that work best in their schedule.  New participants will also be asked to complete some written assessments (True/False type questions) to demonstrate a knowledge of the basic rules.

Please contact our Director of Referees, Michelle Claude at michelle@gfhoops.com if you have any questions about the program
