The Officials Awards Night highlights some of the standout individuals who have dedicated their time to our sport.

Referees and Technical Officials within basketball in South Australia dedicate countless hours to ensuring games can be conducted and we wouldn’t have the opportunities available without these team members.  

The awards for the evening acknowledge statisticians, score table officials, referees, and referee coaches. Highlight the significant achievements of our rising stars, most dedicated and team members of the year.
