EMW Camp 2012 Invitation

Dear Friends,

As every year, since 2004, we have tried to organize the best possible camp for basketball referees.

On the side of the very good group of instructors we always try to have as good games as possible to teach referees their job on the court.

This year, with 9th edition of our Basketball Referee’s Camp, we are going back to Estonia.

The Camp 2012 will take place in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. We plan to start the camp on August 29th at 2:30p.m and finish on September 2nd at 6 p.m.

The exact time schedule is going to be confirmed later.


Website attacked by virus

Dear Users/Campers!

We are sorry but our website was attacked by virus.
This is why right now you can only see part of our sources.
Very soon we will upload our website again in full version.

This should come next days. Also that time we will upload all information about next camp which will take place at the end of August 2012 in Tallinn (Estonia).

We are very sorry for any inconveniences.


New pictures gallery from Tallin

Dear friends, we just published photos from our latest referee's camp on the website. You can find them in GALLERIES.

Sponsors - big part of success

This years camp in Estonia was a success, everything went well due to organizing part, games, lectures and infrastructure. A big part of the success was our sponsors, who we would like to thank from that place and declare our gratitude for being with us during this year.

You can read more about each of our sponsor by going directly to their web pages by clicking the logo on the right side on referee.pl

Tallinn - last day

On Sunday, the last day of the camp, we had two last lectures, that due to last night party, went very well and campers were listening with full attention. :)

On that day we talked a lot about how to achieve the aims you set up for yourself as a referee. Sasa was telling to campers about his life as referee, how it is to officiate at the same time Euroleague games, FIBA games, Adriatic league games and domestic Slovenian matches.

CAMP Day 4

On Saturday was raining from early morning, that is why we needed to cancel the jogging, but the rain did not stop us from heaving a great lecture done by Peter Strikwerda according to the plan, and then we moved to the gym where we continued with the games.

Before the games started we made a family photo with the players. Again this afternoon matches were very fast and good level, so accurate for instructors to watch the campers and their "action" in the court.

CAMP Day 3

It was a long day ... but we manage to work very well.

Again we started with Fiba jogging at 8.00, then Sasa Pukl gave very interesting lecture, and then we moved into the gym for games. Very good level of games gave the possibility for campers to show their abilities on the court and also improve their performance.

2nd day of the Referees Camp

After the first day of introduction and lectures, everybody already know each other, we could start what referees were waiting for - games. All games from the morning had very good level and were great to use for a camp purposes. All our camp participants are really performing good with the high engagement.

Day second started at 8.00 with Fiba style jogging, then we had Carl Jungebrand lecture, then we continued with games and by 23.00 when we finished with feedback together the tiring, but good day, was gone.

Waiting for day 3.

Camp in Tallinn had just started - 1st day

Today we have started the first day of the Referees Camp in Tallinn. Hurray!

Some people arrived already yesterday evening, while the rest came today in the morning. The registration started from 11.30, and after we confirmed our list and deliver the equipment everybody gathered for the welcome speeches of our instructing team.
