Job Information - Basketball Referee & Timekeepers MAIN WEB SITE: www.psarefs.com
Basketball has 4 seasons of league play and various tournaments through out a year. We have over 2,000 teams playing basketball with us a year, therefore we need good qualified referees. Howard LeCover is in charge of Referees and timekeepers training and scheduling. Howard's website is www.psarefs.com for more information. The following are descriptions of what he does.
- Director of Referees and timekeepers
- Scheduler of Refs and timekeepers
- Trainer of Refs and timekeepers
The majority of training for officials and timekeepers occurs prior to the winter season, normally in October/November. During the other seasons, experienced officials and new timekeepers are brought in, on a case-by-case basis.
You do not apply for timekeeper or referee positions at PSA. You would check for when training is held and come to the meetings and you are instructed by the Director of Referees on the procedures for employment. Meetings are posted on the www.psarefs.com website.
TIMEKEEPER AND REFEREE TRAINING
TIMEKEEPERS TRAINING FOR WINTER BASKETBALL SEASON:
With basketball games year round, PSA basktball has tremendous opportunities for young people to operate the electronic scoreboards at every game. It's a great chance for anyone aged 14 and above to be involved with the game and earn money ($6.00 per game) also! As an "independent contractor," each timekeeper chooses their own days and times each week and then all that has to be done is to show up, operate the clock, and collect paychecks every two weeks!
It is that simple. Everything is internet based on this website. Every week, all games are divided into groups of 2,3, or 4 games. All time slots are then posted on this site each week, and then, on a first come first served basis, you just select the days and times you want! With as many games as there are, there is always enough games to go around. How many you choose to select is totally up to you! When you select some, you get an email confirmation, and your schedule is always available to be seen on the website. Yes, it is that simple.
