New officials visit the New Officials Corner…
Denver Area 8 is the official High School Basketball Officials Association in the Denver Metro area. Area 8 is one of the 18 districts within the state organization of Colorado Board #4. Colorado Board #4 is the state member of International Association of Approved Basketball Officials (IAABO). To work varsity assignments in Colorado, members must pass the certification test of IAABO.
The Denver area assignors represent 14 leagues with over 6000 varsity games assigned every season. With lower level JV, Sophomore and Freshman games on both the girls and boys sides, Denver Area 8 assignors will assign a total of over 15,000 high school games.
To say that we have enough officials to cover these games with our 300+ certified members can be a stretch so we are always encouraging new potential officials to sign up and get off the couch!
This website is being developed for informational purposes for the membership of Denver Area 8 as well as other non-certified high school officials with the hope that they will advance to the high school level.
Be sure and check back on a regular basis as we will be updating and adding content! All suggestions are welcome as this is a work in progress.
