What Officials should do...
Basketball is regarded as among the most difficult sports to officiate, due to the speed of play and instantaneous judgement required. Officials are usually referred to as referees, however the title of official also applies to the scorers and timekeepers, as well as other personnel that have an active task in maintaining the game. So what at all should officials do during the off season apart from taking a break.

In our L where there's been so much complain of low level of officiating, I think our referees should really make use of all the time of and better themselves.

The off season is the best time to learn more. Spend time at clinics, training camps, watching films of games, and studying the rulebook. Where clinics are not available sit with other officials and watch game tapes, go through the rulebook and learn together...remember it's a team sport!
