Welcome to the website of the Calgary Basketball Officials Association
CBOA’s mission is to recruit, train, promote and provide consistent, professional officials to all basketball leagues in Calgary and area.

The next CBOA clinic will take place at St. Mary's High School on November 22, 2014. Registration/sign-in will begin at 8:45 in the library. The General Meeting will begin at 9:00 AM, with educational sessions running 10:00 AM until 12:30.
As usual, our presenters bring a wealth of experience, from ACAC and CIS to international competition. As such, this is the most important local opportunity to add to our own on-floor and game management skill set.
Last, there will be sessions designed to prepare our membership for the CABO exam that all of our members must write. With changes to the rules in effect for this season, preparation for this exam has some obvious areas of focus in addition to the usual topics. The ABOA education page has a wealth of resources to help prepare for the clinic and the exam, but the opportunity to discuss and visualize the application of the rules cannot be replicated in PDF's alone.
High School basketball is nearly upon us, so see you November 22!

Dick also ends along this NEW info:
"All CBOA members are asked to email the commissioner (email@example.com) and provide the following information:
1) Are you available to work games starting at 4 pm on weekdays (both High School and Junior High games)?
2) Are you available to work games during the day on the following Fridays: Nov. 28, Dec. 5, Dec. 12 and Jan. 9?
Responding to these questions ASAP will help the commissioner assign you games."
