The Pakenham and District Basketball Association runs a Senior Championship Program, commonly known as the BigV.
This season runs from March to August each year and we are looking for people to become a critical member of the Technical Officials group at the home games.
So what does a Technical Official do?
The Technical Officials consist of the following people at every BigV game. You could be doing one of the following roles which is a vital part of the smooth running of the BigV competition.
- Chairperson: Ensures the smooth operation on the scoretable and communicates with the referees.
- Scorer: Consistently fills in the scoresheet.
- Timekeeper: Operates the game clock according to the competition rules, and in most situations operate the scoreboard.
- 24 second shot clock operator: Operates the shot clock by stopping and resetting (according to the rules).
- Assistant Scorer: Not always required but when the game clock and scoreboard visuals are not on the same console they will operate the visuals on the scoreboard.
- 3 Statisticians: The role of the statistician is to record predetermined statistics for players and teams electronically with a statistics program on a computer.
Do I need any prior knowledge of being an official to take on one of the roles above?
No, you don’t need any prior knowledge but you will need to be trained to ensure we are complying with relevant competition rules, as well as the smooth running of BigV games.
You will be advised of the next available course date once we have confirmed numbers for officials.
This all sounds pretty good so far, but I’d like to know more.
If you are interested in becoming part of the Technical Officials group at Pakenham, or would like additional information please contact us at email@example.com with your details and a member of the team will give you a call.
The season is not far away so we’d love to hear from you!
