Referee Information

The SPBA referee program has 58 referees which officiate over 130 domestic and representative games every week under Referee Advisor Murray Sydenham. We currently have six referees on the VJBL and Big V Panels and one referee on the SEABL Panel. One of our development pathways is through attending Basketball Victoria Country Championship events as well as regular evaluations from our own referee coaches. WNBL referee Kellie Knight started here at SPBA under past Referee Advisor, John Holden (4 time Olympic referee) whom also taught many of our current active referees.
