About Referees

Hawkesbury Referees

The Hawkesbury & Districts Basketball Association is committed to developing officials in the Hawkesbury & its surrounding districts. With nearly 50 officials who have regular training and education of mechanics and rule updates, HDBA officials represent the association at various levels of the game from State through to Waratah League and Sydney Junior Championships.

HDBA domestic referees service junior and senior games each week, ranging from Under 12’s junior games through to open senior competitions. We also offer a range of referee services for external games, from primary and high school competitions to various other tournaments.

HDBAs Referee Development Manager is employed to manage and implement our referee program affiliated with Basketball New South Wales with input from an experienced NBL referee coach. This involves recruitment of new officials as well rostering and administration of the program to grow our new officials and develop existing officials. With our officials ranging from 11yrs to 50+yrs, it’s never too late to get involved and give back to the local community.

If you are interested in learning how to become an official or have any enquiries related to officiating please contact Nicholas Varlet on 4587 8105 or 0410 648 078, or alternatively by email at info@hawkesburybasketball.
