We believe that you will get a great deal from the Lone Star Referee Camp that will positively affect your career.  Our goal is to provide officials with quality instruction at an affordable price.  We thank you in advance for choosing Wellington Johnson Referee Camp for continuing your education as a basketball official. 


To Prospective Campers:

This will be the 18th Annual Wellington Johnson Referee Camp. In order to honor a long time member of the Fort Worth Chapter for his dedication, commitment, love for the game and service to our chapter:  We have named this event “The Wellington Johnson Referee Camp”.

This is a great opportunity for you to improve your basketball officiating skills and begin to take your game to the next level.  The 2018 Wellington Johnson Referee Camp will provide you an affordable way to learn, improve and develop your 3-person officiating skills.  At just $125 this camp is an exceptional value. After August 31st the cost will increase to $150.

The Fort Worth Chapter’s Wellington Johnson Camp was organized and developed in order to effectively train Texas High School basketball officials in 3-person mechanics and to provide them with necessary information to effectively officiate using the 3-person system.  We are dedicated to teaching you the finest court techniques while helping the development and improvement of each camper.  We still strive to make your camp experience both productive and enjoyable.

We have once again assembled a great staff of successful upper level officials who have officiated at NCAA Division 1 and/or at the State Tournament.  They will provide you with officiating theory, evaluation critiques, and videotape reviews of each of your games on selected courts.
