New VBRA Knox Referee Jackets!

Hi team!

Whilst we had a short break from being on court, the Vbra Knox Branch Committee have been working hard behind the scenes to finalise a new design for our 'On Court' Referee Jacket with our apparel partner Ref Warehouse and Archer Officials.

The sleek new design is attached for your perusal. We are now also in a position to take pre-orders for the jackets which are expected to arrive within the next 4-8 weeks.

If you would like to place an order now, a comprehensive sizing chart is provided so that you are able to measure up and order the correct size.

The online pre-order form is available here:

Jackets will be $65.00 and will be phased in over the next twelve months to replace the current on court jacket worn. For the time being, both jackets are approved to be worn on court.

So that we are able to finalise our first initial order, we are asking that all pre-orders are placed by midnight on Thursday 29 July 2021. There will be a range to select from after the initial purchase, however sizing will be on a first in best dressed basis (and whilst stocks last).

If you have any questions, please feel free to comment on this post or email

VBRA Knox programs and major events 

VBRA Knox Branch strives to offer its members, those involved at Knox Basketball and the wider community positive experiences through a variety of additional activities executed both on and off the court.

Annual Development Camp

Yearly development camp, open to all members, provides a great chance to build relationships with fellow referees of all levels and also receive learning in a unique camp environment. 

Fundraising and community programs

VBRA Knox organises many programs such as our Pink round for fundraising for breast cancer research and fundraising programs such as sausage sizzles and chocolate drives to help fund our functions and ongoing activities.

Unique On court opportunities

Refereeing at Knox allows for on court learning and experiences in practice such as 3 person officiating, referee coaching and a pathway for referee progression.
