2019 PNBOA FALL TRAINING ACADEMY
What you can expect if you attend the Academy:
The Fall Training Academy is an opportunity for PNBOA Members to receive the most current training in NFHS 3-person basketball mechanics without having to leave the area, devote an entire long weekend away from family and work obligations, or break the bank. It is intended for all PNBOA Members looking to improve their 3-person basketball officiating skills (or learn it for the first time). Those aspiring to become a Varsity official or recently promoted to the Varsity list would be well served at this Academy. Among other things, it is sufficient to satisfy the camp requirement for promotion from the Registered List to being a first-time Varsity Official. We will present instruction on NFHS 3-person mechanics, game film breakdown, and classroom exercises.
Where and when:
As in the past, the Academy will be conducted in conjunction with the Bellevue College High School Fall League taking place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Sunday afternoons. It will run from September 15, to November 7.* The Academy will kick off with a classroom session at Bellevue College the morning of September 23rd. There is no requirement to be present for all or even a majority of days; however, the more you put into your training, the more you will get out of it.
Who's on staff:
This year's Academy is again being coordinated by Jeremy Lazowska. The staff will be comprised of Officials who have spent significant amounts of time and effort to stay apprised of up-to-date training on 3-person mechanics. Each member of the staff is willing, able, and eager to share their time and information for your betterment, as well as that of the PNBOA.
What's the cost:
$150, plus your time, energy, and desire to improve. If you were awarded a Scholarship, you may use that towards this Academy.
