About the Camp

The HRBOA Basketball Officials Camp is a teaching camp geared totally toward our officials who want to improve their skills and become better officials. NFHS 3-person mechanics are taught and utilized at the camp. The camp is staffed by NCAA and VHSL officials, many of whom have experience at the VHSL State Tournament and Collegiate Tournament levels. Guest speakers will include highly successful NCAA officials; the HRBOA Commissioners will be in attendance.

This is an excellent camp for HRBOA officials who want to improve or refresh his/her officiating skills, but is especially good for individuals who:

  • Have completed one - ten plus years of high school officiating and would like to begin refining their skills.
  • Have completed three or more years of high school officiating but feel "stuck" in the advancement process.
  • Have financial limitations or professional obligations that make other camps cost or time prohibitive.
