Referee Courses



Basketball Queensland’s Referee Development Program provides pathways for referees from officiating their first game of junior basketball through to being a FIBA official at international events. The pathways available to referees include being able to referee at local, regional, state, national and international competitions at both junior and senior levels.

Part of this development is guided by BQ's referee grading system and courses. Progression from one level to the next is based on your theory knowledge and practical expertise, and the pace of progression will differ for every referee.


Referee courses range from Community Grade right through to National Grade, providing a pathway from entry level to national and international competition.  Lower level courses are typically facilitated at an association level and as such the first point of contact should be with your association's referee coordinator.

For more information or details about advanced grade courses, please contact BQ's Referee Development Manager -
