Looking for an Basketball Officials camp in the Minnesota. Looking for this summer. Want to find one that will help me get ready to officiate college level games, Division 2 and below.

I work the Twin Cities with Gopher State. Also have done some HS games in Ogilvie, Isle, and Carelton. Thanks for the Info. Is this the onlt Camp in MN this summer? And is it for 2 and 3 man?

Brad Panning, also with Gopher, runs 2 - 3 camps a summer. One is geared towards HS (some 2 man, but mostly 3 man), the others for college. You get video with comments, as well as the on court comments. Last year his HS camp was cancelled due to a conflict with a free camp held at the U.

The camp at the U is typically held the weekend after Fathers day. It's been free, and they pay for your parking. You work a lot of 3 man games, and get written evals after the game if I remember correctly.

Check out under the officials corner. There's typically a link in there for camps in MN.

Good Advice TJ. I did not think of Brads camp. Jack Shawn from Suburban runs the ones at the U and I am pretty sure there will be 2 sessions of it this summer.

I am on the Promotion Level Committee for the MSHSL and while training clinics will be part of the level or tiers for officials in all sports in Minnesota as this is introduced for each sport, there have been no discussions of which I am aware that would make a specific camp mandatory. Rather there will be a training/clinic requirement to progress to various levels or tiers. The current plan is to allow this requirement to be met by different methods, one of which would be MSHSL sponsored camps/clinics but not limited to the MSHSL summer basketball camps at the U of M. For example, a college camp could meet the requirement. The idea is to have the training requirement but to keep it flexible enough to allow it to be met in many different ways.

Contact me offline if you want more details.

I'm interested in the list of Minnesota camps but the mshsl officials corner requires a user id and password, I've added the umd camp to my list at and would like to add other camps. Please provide info or go the site and click add in the upper left corner to add camps. Thanks.
