On Saturday 25th November we came together at the State Basketball Centre to celebrate the success of our Referees and Technical Officials in 2023. 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. The event also allowed us to acknowledge the Life Membership of Steve Greaves who has dedicated decades to the official’s space within our sport having an outstanding impact throughout his time.
Please join us in acknowledging and celebrating the individuals who were the recipients of the 2023 Officials Awards.
