State Accreditation - BSA

There exists in many associations a number of referees who have been the backbone of the local organisation and assisted as referees for a number of years. Many of these officials may have an older accredication such as Level 1 or just an in house local level which is often geared to your association payment structure and unfortunately not recognised outside you local environment.

We would like to assist you and in turn you can assist us to recognise at the state level these valued officials. The old accreditation of Level 1 no longer exist. what we would like to do is transisition all your local association referees accross to these new levels ranging from Level 0, Level 1C, 1B, 1A and Level 2 or 3 and officially recognise each one.

We have introduced a state wide accredation card and this can be issued to all referees in South Australia recognising their currrent level. These cards can be used locally to show each referees level of accreditation, between local associations in SA and other states and will become the accepted medium for accreditation.

We will print the cards and official letters of recognition for each referee in your association. All you need to do is supply the following;

- Referee name, address, contact email, mobile, current local level, years of service and how long they have held this level of accreditation and what age/ division games they referee.

Basketball SA will do the rest.
