Love to RefereeTM


Love to Referee is located in Northern California and is dedicated to providing the highest standards of sports officiating.  (Love to Referee has been featured in the Sacramento Bee).                                      

What we do! 
Love To Referee through clinics, training, classroom instruction (using our specially developed handbook) and on-court "real-world" experience gives the individual the tools necessary to become a Recreational Basketball Official. If you love to work with children, serve your community and believe that sportsmanship and safety are first and foremost, we can help you achieve that goal. We can train you to officiate today's youth from first grade through eighth grade. It is never to late to live your dream!                                 

Contact us now!

We believe that every official should:
know the rules of the game; be courteous; be tactful; see the play; put safety, fairness and fun first; use good mechanics; be dedicated; be professional; be neat and clean; use preventive officiating; trust their partner and always be willing to learn!

 Are you a Recreation and Park District? 
In today's environment it may seem cost efficient to hire an outside contractor or an independent assigner. Can you be sure of the quality of the official you are getting? If you hire an individual they become an employee, which gives you the ability to train, assign and teach the official the policies of your district, including the values of fair play and sportsmanship. Love To Referee can assist you in the training of your official's, scorekeepers and on-site gym personnel.
