This camp will be held in conjunction with the Genesis Classic Basketball Tournament. Genesis is one of the best club programs in Alberta, and is bringing in boys teams from all over Western Canada and from as far away as Arizona and California. The level of basketball promises to challenge all officials with numerous college level players expected to attend.
Campers can expect to be challenged by the level of play allowing each referee to improve their 3-person mechanics, call quality & judgment, on court presence, game awareness and game management. There will be no classroom sessions, just on court critique & evaluation plus some social time in the evenings.
The Evaluators know the landscape when it comes to refereeing in Canada, they have all been where you presently are in terms of your ability, potential, challenges & frustrations. The staff includes John Weiland, one of Canada's most respected FIBA officials, who refereed the 1988 Olympics and is a long-serving National Evaluator who has been the A/E at numerous CIS Mens Championships and has been selected for the U17 Mens Nationals this summer in Edmonton. Recently added are CIS officials Doug Carter, Carl Artis, Troy Eagar, Provincial A/E Chairman & National Evaluator Jake Steinbrenner, ACAC official & Provincial Evaluator Grant Hoe and Michael Weiland, a current FIBA Cardholder who has been traveling to several FIBA Americas tournaments this winter and has been selected to the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain (formerly Mens World Championships) http://fiba.com/spain2014
