20 female referees from the Kilsyth branch have been identified and invited to participate in the program. They will be matched with five mentors who will provide them with support and guidance in their development as referees.
Each participant will officiate in at least two games per month with their mentor and will be provided with hints and tips on the practical understanding of how to referee.
Supporting the mentoring sessions will be a series of 10 workshops by expert presenters covering game management, nutrition, fitness tips for referees, communication and dealing with difficult people among other topics.
Kilsyth Basketball is looking forward to assisting these young female referees to progress through the development pathway, develop positive relationships with mentors and essential leadership skills for all aspects of life.
The program will run from October 2009-July 2010 and will be used by the Australian Sports Commission and Basketball Australia as a case study on mentoring female officials.
