Applicant registration
Welcome to Central Connecticut Board #6 of Approved Basketball Officials! Our organization was established to train and educate high school basketball officials in the central Connecticut area (Hartford and Middlesex counties). We belong to a larger international organization of several thousand officials, the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials (IAABO). We welcome your interest in basketball officiating. Our job is to help you begin a successful officiating career.

There are several steps to become an approved basketball official. It is our responsibility to help you complete these steps. The first step requires registering for a rules class/exam option (see options below) followed by a floor training session/exam. You will learn more about the floor training sessions after you successfully complete the rules exam.

There are two options to register:

Option #1 (live/in-person) Register and complete our on-line application by clicking "Start the Application" below for in-person rules classes held in the Spring or Fall. Dates, times and location of the course can be found in the attached review sessions. We will have study materials available for each session and share past exams to help your exam preparation. The course instructor(s) will be available for 30 minutes before and after class for any additional questions.

Option #2 (self-paced/online) Click the following link that describes an on-line rules opportunity called IAABO University If you are interested, please complete our on-line application by clicking "Start the Application" below. Once you have completed the application we will connect you with our Rules Interpreter, Charlene Shepard, and IAABO University to start your online rules study.

Payment information Payment for Option #1 (in-person class) must be completed on-line at the time of registration and prior to attending the training classes. The payment for Option #2 (IAABO University) is made directly to IAABO University. You will pay for the online course directly through their website after completing this online application (below). Please make sure you can commit to the requirements of either option before completing your application.

Refund information Once your payment is received for Option #1 (in-person), you may withdraw and receive a refund, less a $50.00 processing fee, prior to the first day of the class. If you choose to withdraw after the start of the class, you will receive no refund. There is no refund if you choose Option #2 (IAABO University).

Upon achieving a successful score on the rules exam, you will then be assisted by our New Applicant Training Committee and must successfully complete a floor training exam.

It is a rare individual who is able to successfully pass the rules and floor training exams without sufficient review of the national rules book and attendance at our scheduled training sessions. We expect a commitment from you.

We love the game of basketball and fully understand the critical role of basketball officials. We look forward to your participation. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Jimmy Wildman, New Applicant Committee Chair
