Welcome to the home of the

Suffolk Board of Womens' Basketball Officials

Section XI availability

The on-line winter availabilities have been unlocked.  Please advise your officials to log onto the website and complete all steps (detailed instructions are available at #5 on the right side of the screen…we strongly advise that they print them out prior to starting the on-line process).

 Please note that if officials need to block out dates or adjust their start or end times on specific dates, they MUST do that on the “Calendar” screen themselves. Block out dates should NOT be listed in the “Comments” section of the Availability screen.  They should be sure to click on the actual date number (not just in the box) to access that portion of the screen.

 We ask that availabilities be submitted to us no later than Oct. 15.

 We understand that questions will arise, and officials can certainly call our office.  However, we would like to stress that they should refer to the step-by-step instructions prior to contacting us.

 Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this transition period.

Sportsmanship Card
The New York State Public High School Athletic Association requires officials to enforce all sportsmanship rules for athletes and coaches. We will not tolerate negative statements or actions between opposing players, especially trash-talking, taunting or baiting of opponents. If such comments are heard or actions seen, a penalty will be assessed immediately. We have been instructed not to issue warnings. Let today's contest reflect mutual respect.
