The clinic is expected to attract all basketball umpires, those aspiring to become one and representatives from all Cezobal teams. The clinic will be held at the African Bible College (ABC) Macon Gymnasium.
In an e-mail response, the leagueâ€™s vice-chairperson Barlett Mafuleka said the clinic will start at 8am.
“We had a great season last year and we want the same to happen this year. Cezobal believes that the league can only be exciting if there are no complaints about officiation, so we want to ensure that when the league resumes, all minor challenges we faced last year are solved,” said Mafuleka.
He added that it is now a must for all teams participating in the league to have an umpire and said for this reason, any team that will not send a representative to the clinic will be punished.
Mafuleka said the clinic will focus on court mechanics, especially on movements on the court, responsibilities and dressing. It will also discuss how the game is played.
He said after a class session, there will a practical game to help the trainers to appreciate if the participants have benefited from the training. The whole session will be closed with a review of the practical game and a theory test.
