Referees are a vital part of basketball – without them, we wouldn’t have a game. Melb Utd. VJBL referees have progressed through each association’s domestic referee program before they advance to this level. Many referees will go on to referee at a senior level such as Big V, SEABL or even in the NBL and WNBL.
Referee Pay Rates
The referee pay rates are set by the Victorian Basketball Referees Association (VBRA) after consultation with the competitions. Rates are presented for approval at the November Basketball Victoria state conference for the following season.
Referee Travel Claim Form
To be eligible to make a claim, referees must have travelled more than 100kms, leaving from and returning to their home association. Travel in Excess of 100kms is reimbursed at the discretion of the Melb Utd. Referees Administrator.
Panel Referee Program
The Victorian Junior Panel Program is made up of selected qualified referees who are nominated by their home association and appointed to officiate in Victorian Championship League games.
