    Referee Equipment - Whistle & Pants

    Q: When officiating, do I need a black whistle or would any whistle work? Is there any difference between official pants and ordinary black pants? 

    A: You need a Fox 40 whistle to officiate. They can be purchased at Basketball Manitoba and are usually available for purchase at all clinics. Ideally, you should order official's pants from Honig's Canada. They are made specifically for officiating, with no belt loops and tend to be more comfortable than regular black dress pants. However, if you choose to buy regular black dress pants and they have belt loops, you must wear a belt with them when officiating.
