Referee Certification and Training Videos


All non-certified referee's are required to take the National Federation of High School Basketball Officials Pass/Fail Exam. This exam can be taken by clicking HERE. The results of this test will need to be submitted to WYSC. A passing score of 70  or better is required to get full credit. Any referee who fails this test still be able to referee but at a lower pay rate. This will require all referee's to have the basketball rules book.
