Become a 🏀 Referee in Luxembourg: Your Guide to Calling the Shots!

Ever dreamed of being at the heart of the action on the basketball court? Do you have a keen eye for fair play and a passion for the game? Then becoming a basketball referee in Luxembourg could be the perfect opportunity for you!

This post will guide you through the steps to becoming a licensed referee and joining our community.

Step 1: Get Licensed

To become an official referee, you’ll need a license from the Luxembourg Basketball Federation (FLBB). Here’s how to get started:

  1. Fill Out Form N°1: This form is your official application for a referee license. You can download it here: https://adabl.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Form-1-Licence.pdf 🔗
  2. Submit Your Application: Send the completed form N°1 to info@flbb.lu with a copy to org@flbb.lu. Need help filling it out? The FLBB is happy to assist! Contact them at +352 48 18 76-1 and ask about obtaining a neutral license for referees.
  3. Medical Exam: As part of the licensing process, you’ll need to pass a medical exam. This website (https://guichet.public.lu/en/citoyens/loisirs/activites-sportives/pratique-activite-sportive/controle-medico-sportif.html 🔗) provides all the details (you can even switch the language to English, French, or German!).

Step 2: Join the Community

Becoming a referee isn’t just about the paperwork! Connecting with the local basketball community is a great way to get support and learn from experienced officials.

Step 3: Become Part of the Team (Literally!)

Once you’re licensed and connected, it’s time to get your gear!

  • Form N°2 & Recommendations: Fill out form N°2 (download it here: https://adabl.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/Form-2-Fiche.docx 🔗) and send it to org@flbb.lu. This helps the referee commission keep track of your information. You can also submit any recommendation letters from referees or other federations you know to this address.
  • Official Shirt & Whistle: Order your official referee shirt (and whistle!) from the ADABL shop (https://adabl.org/shop/ 🔗). One of our members, Patrick O., will contact you after your order to complete the process. Please note: Referee pants are not currently available through the ADABL shop and will need to be purchased from a local sporting goods store.
