Newcastle Basketball is excited to announce the appointment of David Sams (pictured) as our new Referees Manager.

Dave is in charge of the official side of the game, including all our referees, scorebench and stats staff. Dave has replaced Alison Ebzery, who has done a sterling job running our referees for the past six months. We wish Alison all the best as she pursues a new career path and we look forward to seeing her playing for the Newcastle Hunters this year.
