ABC Officials Camp

ABC Officials Camp is an education and skills camp for officials who have a wide variety of abilities and experiences. ABC Camp will provide campers with the individual attention to meet their specific needs. It is designed for  young AND experienced Officials who want  to improve their mechanics, rules application, game management and overall understanding of officiating high school basketball. This camp is run by Officials, for Officials, for those who seriously want to prepare to take the next step in Officiating.

Please understand, This is NOT a college tryout camp, however, several college Supervisors and clinicians are expected to be in attendance throughout the weekend. It is a great “Pre Camp” tuneup opportunity for those who are attending the FHSAA State Identification Camp as well as staff camps in hopes of getting picked up at the collegiate level.

Why should I attend this camp?
If you are a High School Official who is looking to improve your performance on the court, ABC will give you plenty of court time with experienced officials working to identify weaknesses and  help improve all areas of your game. If you are a JV official looking to learn 3 man mechanics, this is the perfect place to get started. If you are a Varsity official who is trying to improve your standing within your Association, be it better games during the season, better Play-Off assignments in the Post Season, then our Clinicians will work side by side with you to prepare you to take the next step up in your Officiating career! There will be classroom instruction live games Friday and Saturday, and the camp concludes with the Big Camp Championship tournament Sunday .  We will have plenty of  experienced staff to discuss rules situations, end of game scenarios, and communication with coaches and partners. Only National Federation rules and mechanics will be taught and used

Who is going to observe me?
Mark and John have called on a number of great Officials throughout Florida to assist in giving you a great Camp experience. All of the Clinicians have a great passion for Officiating the game, and a great  desire  to share their knowledge and watch fellow Officials become stronger and more confident on the court!!
