Rico’s Get Better Officials’ Development Camp
Camp Background and Special Emphasis:
With the Summer of 2011 nearly half-over, and the Fall approaching sooner than we would like, this is the perfect time to “Get Better” as a high school varsity basketball official. Our camp will strongly emphasize an enhancement of your officiating portfolio with a greater understanding and mastering of 3 man/person mechanics. This unique camp will be conducted in collaboration with Rico Cabrera, Jr.’s 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation, Rico’s Get Better Foundation, and nationally recognized, Rico’s Get Better League (click here to view highlights.) The level of competition will feature some of Southern California’s top-rated and nationally recruited Boys’ varsity high school players.
Our innovative camp administration is focused on instructing, evaluating, and mentoring each camper during an innovative weeklong vs. a traditional weekend environment. Each accepted camper will receive numerous opportunities to “Get Better” over the course of (6) days of competition. The venue is a state-of-the-art high school gymnasium with instructional rooms conducive to individual, as well as, group teaching.
Rico Cabrera, Sr. (Former FIBA/USA Basketball, NCAA, NBA Pro-Am, NFHS, and current ABA Western Region Coord.); Asst. Director, John Thompson (Former NCAA, NBA Pro-Am, NFHS and current ABA Regional Coord.); Special Guest Speaker: Bruce Hicks, highly respected and veteran NCAA Division 1 official assigned to Pac-12, WAC, Big West, WCC, and Mountain West conferences; Guest Speaker/Observer, John Lozano, CBOA, Los Angeles Unit, Instructional Chairperson/CIF Rules Interpreter; and other accomplished officials currently assigned to NCAA D-1, D-2, D-3, and NJCAA Community College levels. In addition, a cadre of distinguished members of several Southern California CBOA Units will serve as clinicians, evaluators and mentors. This assembled group of veteran basketball officials and administrators is strongly committed to providing you with the most innovative instructional, developmental, and training environment for career advancement.
12-16 CBOA certified varsity officials (Male/Female) who have a minimum of 1-3 years officiating at this level and desire more specialized training in 3 person mechanics. We welcome those officials who are eager to improve and Get Better in their off-season while preparing for the upcoming 2011-2012 season.
