An Education Leader Serving the Women's Collegiate Basketball Officiating Community
WCBOO’s mission is to provide prospective and current women’s collegiate basketball officials a dynamic learning environment to enhance their on- and off-court preparedness and toward achieving their officiating goal(s). The mission is achieved by providing the official an opportunity to enhance their understanding of women’s collegiate rules, mechanics and nuances of officiating the women’s game.
The WCBOO learning environment uses synchronous, in-person learning and asynchronous on-line learning that creates a flexible and versatile experience. The environment includes rules presentations, group discussions on officiating topics, clinics highlighting specific areas of officiating, rule and mechanics sessions, and video review. WCBOO’s content is guided by a combination of its affiliation with related officiating organizations and an education team that offers their experience in officiating at all levels of women’s collegiate basketball including the NCAA Division I Final Four. This ensures the provided content is relevant, current, and expected by assignors and coordinators.
