Beau Bentley has been appointed as the new Referee Manager of Kilsyth Basketball.
Beau now joins us on a full-time basis in the newly created position, where he will oversee all referees’ rostering, recruitment, retainment, and education. Beau will also be working closely with our Technical Advisor to build a best practice referee program.
One of the challenges for all sporting organisations is the ability to attract and retain good officials – particularly since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. As an organisation we need to be able to deliver a positive and supportive environment for our new, developing, and experienced referees, and this needs to be delivered consistently to all our officials.
With these objectives in mind it became apparent that a new Referee Manager position was needed to meet the challenges ahead, and that Beau was the ideal fit for the role.
Beau has been with Kilsyth Basketball more than seven years, and has contributed greatly in his role as Junior Administrator by developing a pool of committed referees. We would like to congratulate Beau on his appointment and and we look forward to working alongside him in his new position beginning next week.
