Sports officials bear great responsibility for engendering public confidence in sports. They are critical to the health of athletic competitions. Officials ensure games are played fairly, by the rules, within the spirit of the rules and in a safe manner. Officiating takes a great deal of preparation, continuing education and commitment of time.

Officials with the MBA, Season 2017-2018, will be paid according to the rate determined by the board per basketball game, and will be required to sign up a PayPal account, where the funds will automatically be transferred into the account every two weeks.  If you need assistance with this, please contact Michele Leber, Treasurer of the MBA.
