Very few of us (if any) get to officiate worldcup finals or games alike. That does not mean we cannot learn from the people who do. Fiba issued a websession earlier this year with the crew of the last worldcup. Check down below! Lees “Final Pregame!” verder
Earlier this year FIBA held a webinar about Women in Officiating. We probably all have seen the message that there has been an increase in women among the new FIBA referees and we can only applaud that. The webinar is down below the cut. If you ask us it’s worth watching!

As referees we can say, and the people in ancient Rome already knew: Errare Humanum Est. But as referees we have to be able to not let our performances suffer after mistakes or errors. I can remember a game a long time ago where I stepped in between to guards who went head to head as my collegue was reporting foul to the table. As I turned around the 2.14meters tall captain of the guests was down on the baseline. My refereecoach that game told me after that the performance lost almost 25%. Wish I had seen the following websession of REDIG24 before that game! Lees “Emotional Control and Mistake Management with Orlando Varela #websession” verder
Sometimes we see refs reluctantly warming up before the games they are about to do. Two or three laps jogging and that’s it. Refereeing is, just like playing , an athletic event. Besides that: players take their sport seriously by warming up sometimes more than 40 minutes. What kind of impression are we as refs making if we warm up just a few minutes before the game and not even in the break between 2nd and 3rd quarter. Refs Evolving Digitally did a great session about activating your body before during and after the game. Let’s take this time-out a lot of us are having and get better in what we love doing! Eighty minutes well spent! Great job guys! Lees “How to activate your body! #websession” verder

Especially if you are new to the business it’s not strange if you don’t have the exact feeling for calling travelling violations, especially when it comes to stationairy players who can and sometimes have pivot(ed).

A few weeks ago we noticed that Individual officiating Techniques are not as widely known as we assumed. IOT is developed to help us as referees make better decisions on court, which will make our job even more fun to do! So let’s learn from the best! Mohammad Rahimy once again has Roberto Chiari , a two time olympic referee and very experienced referee instructor to share his knowledge about IOT. It’s very worth watching!! Why not start improving your knowledge before the next game you are going to do!
