Welcome to the 2019/20 MUVJBL Referees Registration Process.
The Victorian Junior Panel Program is a critical pathway to the development of Referees in Victoria.
* By agreeing to participate in the Victorian Junior Panel Program, Referees will have to satisfactorily complete a medical or sign the provided waiver (one or the other) in addition to satisfactorily completing a fitness test and theory exam.
* Referees must be financial with TOC for 2019/20.
* Referees are required to officiate at stadiums as appointed by the TOC Appointments Officer and must be available for 75% of the full season and 100% for finals.
* All nominated Referees must have a minimum A Grade (Old 1A) qualification for at least 12 months as of the 31st of January 2020 (for BVC Officials as at the end of the previous BVC season).
* The above rule shall apply however, associations may apply in writing for exemption to this rule should there be special circumstances. Applications should be in writing to the MUVJBL and all decisions by the MUVJBL administration will be final.
* If selected into the program, all Referees must be available to travel to venues other than their home association as required.
* By completing this form the Association has verified that the Referee has a current Working With Children's Check and Basketball Victoria Statutory Declaration (this applies to referees that are 18 years of age or older at any point during the season).
* All Referees selected onto the Victorian Junior Panel Program are expected to make themselves available to referee in the 2019 National Junior Classic, which will be held over the Queens Birthday June Long Weekend (6 - 8 June 2020).
* All Referees selected onto the Victorian Junior Panel Program are expected to make themselves available for Victorian Championship League games before any other VJBL game. This is also to be recognised by the nominating association.
