Technical courses

Only experienced L1 Referees will be accepted onto the L2 course.Our technical development plan aims to make the Sussex Bears Basketball Club a centre for technical excellence for the development of Coaches, Referees, Table Officials, and Statisticians. We do this by regularly running approved Basketball England courses, technical clinics, and support groups using Facebook, our website, and other online systems. Apart from courses where payment must be made to a third party, for example, Referee L2 (managed by Basketball England), clubs booking and paying for multiple candidates receive a discount of 5 for the price of 4.

Frequently asked questions

We work hard to keep prices as low as possible, but last minute additions and cancellations create a lot of additional work and the need to order more BE packs (at additional cost). For courses where you have to book in advance, please ensure you have read the terms and conditions contained in the application form as refunds for late cancellations cannot be made and you will still be liable for the full cost of the course. Thank you for your understanding in this regard. Other terms and conditions are contained in the application form or form part of your booking if made via a third party.
