Coming back after years, special guest at the camp - Mr Konrad Tomczyk

We are honored to host Mr Konrad Tomczyk, who will come to REFEREE.PL as a guest. Some of you may know him as he was many years Top Polish League and FIBA referee. But he is the most known as one of the best instructors, presenters and interpreters of the basketball rules in the history of Polish basketball. Kuba can tell you how his refereeing story began exactly because of this man.

Coming back to the camp as an instructor - Darek Zapolski

This is going to be the first time for Darek as an instructor at REFEREE.PL. Many of you can actually remember him as participant of the camp at the first editions. Well this was in 2004 and now Darek is an International referee and is coming to join OUR TEAM.

A drop of a polish blood in our instructors’ team – Piotr Pastusiak coming to Walbrzych

As you could read for the past two weeks we have announced some of the instructors who will be coming to the camp this year. To this great group for the second time in a row you can add as well – Piotr Pastusiak, who is an international referee from Poland.

Great welcome for George Toliver from NBA !

This year’s camp it is going to be fantastic. Another name on the list of the instructors, who will come to Walbrzych is George Toliver. As a matter of introduction George is currently working as an Associate Vice President in the Referee Development of NBA.

For the very first time at our camp – Daniel HIERREZUELO – one of the top Euroleague referees

We are more than happy for the new guest who will come to us from Spain. Daniel Hierrezuelo is unquestionable one of the best officials in Euroleague now, leading the most important games in the league from many seasons.

Dani started to officiate in 1990. Five years after he had his first game in ACB league. Counting until now he had 670 ACB games, 14 King Cup games and 18 Final games in the league. Such a career developed in 2000, when Daniel became an international referee and five years after got his Euroleague license.

10th EDITION OF REFEREE.PL RESUME

Dear Friends,

I hope all of you managed to comeback home safe!

I am happy we could celebrate the 10th anniversary of the camp with you in Bielsko-Biala. This have been very long five days that passed very fast.  And for which I would like to thank you.

Your engagement was very much visible: during the lectures and also on the court. We have provided excellent set of instructors and games on the highest level that ever were for the camp. Lectures were very varied, touching different fields of officiating. There was a lot of diverse things that we did, as meeting referees with coaches, which was very educational and also the physical preparation meeting, that will help us keep a good shape and condition.

We share Paulo’s loss and send him our deepest sympathy.

Some things in our life happen unexpected and for them we are never ready, but still they happen and we need to deal with it, everybody in their own, individual way.

One of the camp participants – Paulo Rocha Martins – had to leave home in the middle of the camp due to personal issues. We got very sad news, as his mother passed away after fighting incurable disease. On behalf of all the referees from the camp and staff we are sending condolences. Now more than ever he needs our support and friendship.

Paulo, we are thinking tenderly of you today. May you have the strength to bear your great affliction.
