Welcome to The Nunn-Better
Referee Camp July 21-23

We are excited to announce the return of The Nunn-Better Referee Camp, a camp focusing on instruction, training, and development of officials at various levels of ability


Mission Statement

"NunnBetterRefs" is a referee program whose purpose is to improve the effectiveness of officials’ decision-making, judgement and total performance skill-sets.

Our mission is to combine a historic, ever-changing, and current trending program that is cutting edge while incorporating science, art, and a practicum experience that raises their competencies as referees while servicing coaches and players in their quest to showcase their abilities in this great game of basketball.

In addition, we are dedicated in our instructional program to teach the overlapping commonalities in officiating that exist in organizations like IAABO, NCAA, FIBA, Euroleague, WNBA, and the NBA so campers can be trained to the best of their abilities in aspiring to reach their officiating goals.
