: : With the season being over, and no spring or summer ball, I hopefully the referees are still doing training via zoom. This will be an excellent time to recruit new talent with the recession
: or..CIF only hires referees that have played basketball in the last 30 years. Refs nowadays are Trash.
Couple things we notice about referees:
1. Regardless of age, the best officials are going to ref the bigger games. If it is a small school or not as big of game - you will get the less experiences refs (once again, regardless of age).
2. Something we may have noticed is something I hope will be helpful long term. There are some games where a very experienced, top notch official is refing with a newer official that is working to develop. They do this to help and make an impact moving forward.
3. You mentioned CIF, come playoff time, only the best officials are going to get the chance to ref playoff games of course. 1st and 2nd round - 2 officials, but beginning Qtr Finals is when 3 officials begins. Been to at least the Qtr Finals 6 of the last 8 years, I always just hope those officials are used to refing with 3 since it is different. So far, so good.
