TOC Commission and Committees


Who are the VBRA?

All referees must be registered with the BV through their local association, to ensure they can access entitlements associated with Basketball Victoria affiliation. The TOC’s two main responsibilities are to:

  • represent the interests of all Members within Victoria and at a national level
  • provide members with the opportunity to maximise their potential by officiating in the highest level of basketball possible.

In addition to officiating, you can become a Referee Coach or work the scoretable. Referee Coach courses are conducted for referees who want to be involved in teaching and assessing referees’ performances in games. There are three levels for Referee Coaches to attain and you can progress as a Referee Coach just the same as a referee – right up to the NBL.
