THE Hills Raiders Basketball Association have six more qualified referees to use for game nights in the 2016-17 season.

Commonly known as “black and whites” because of the colour of their shirts, publicity officer Kelly Clarke said the referees were officially qualified as level one referees, which was a significant achievement.

“These six new referees received their qualifications in February, just before the finals started, so they were ready to referee in the semi finals and grand final,” Clarke said.
