2015 BNSW Junior Referee Shirts

We have all seen and pretty much understand how karate works with their grading system, the different colors of your belt determines the ranks/level you are. This system goes all the way to the most 

famous black belt, Ladies I am not talking fashion here,  which reminds me I have never seen Jackie Chan wear one in ‘Rush Hour’ 1,2 or even 3.

Why am I talking about karate and their levels in a basketball article, well BNSW is proud to announce that in 2015 our junior league referees have been given a new shirt to wear. The new shirts will be rolled out to all   junior leagues across the states over the next months.
BNSW has done its homework and over the years they have seen the excitement for referees collecting and putting on their first senior league shirt but there was a massive gap between referees getting their stripes and progressing to their senior league shirt.

The new referee shirts have BNSW written all over them, literally! With a sleek grey tinge and a little bit of royal blue blading down the sides, did I mention they had BNSW written on them ? BNSW GM of Marketing and former Metro Referee Program Manager Tim Whealing said “every sporting organization is trying to build an identity and brand. Today the best way to do this is on social media.  #BNSW is an important step in bring all our members and followers together in social media in a simple but fun way! We want to engage and give our members/follower more. #BNSW will allow people to upload pictures and videos so our members around the state and their friends and family from around the world can still feel apart of the BNSW community and competitions.” 


Just like players are excited to put on their first/new rep uniform, referees are too but in the past it was just their local comp black and white stripes. Senior Manager Technical & Events Debbie Keirs said “ It’s great to have a shirt between stripes and referees getting their senior league shirt, it also shows progression and may entice other referees to take the steps into junior reps” Debbie would also like to thank the team at Soul Sports who have been a massive part of the design and production process.


The new shirts are not compulsory for the 2015 regular season and can only be worn if both officials have the shirt. During the 2015 final series the shirt will be  compulsory, so be sure to get your new BNSW Junior league referee shirt today. BNSW referees shirts are now available for individual purchase or as some associations have already done, purchased a number of referee shirts and used them to reward their   junior referees for not only becoming a junior rep referee but to thank them for their commitment to the associations.
