Training clinics set to begin for anyone interested in officiating boys high school basketball
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The Rochester District Board of Approved Board Officials begins its 101st season of officiating Section V boys high school basketball, and they need new officials.
With the impact of COVID-19, and a growing concern of fan behavior at games, fewer men and women are turning to officiating, despite the great flexibility in hours, deep camaraderie among officials, sense of giving back to one’s community, and on-court exercise.
NCAA Final Four referee Jeff Anderson, and Clinic Co-Chairman Mark McElroy, will help kick off the season with Board 60’s first training clinic. The Clinic is for anyone looking to become certified to officiate boys high school basketball in the upcoming season.
The Clinic starts at 7 p .m., Monday, Sept. 19 in room 262 at Brighton High School.
