East Coast Basketball Officials Association

The Basketball Official's Association for Palm Beach County

The ECBOA is dedicated to provide quality officiating for high school basketball games in Palm Beach County and throughout the State of Florida in such a way that enforces the rules in a fair and impartial manner while upholding the integrity of the game.


Check out these Officiating Camps.  Either for advancement or training, it's always a great idea to invest in yourself.


We are continuing to accept interests in becoming a certified high school basketball official.  Our table is set up at major venues throughout the high school season.  Please email to our board liaison for recruiting if you have an interest in officiating basketball.  We would love to start a conversation with you about how to get you involved.

Fellow Official,


Here is an update on ECBOA happenings and events:


** We wrapped up the season with our annual ECBOA banquet at the Lake Worth Golf Club, which was well attended and a fun evening.  Congratulations to our award winners including Eric Schnier (Rookie of the Year), Leon Lipsick (Most Improved), and Jim Dawson (Iron Man Award).  We also recognized the 12 officials who officiated a State game this year in Lakeland.  Thanks to everyone who came to this annual event.


** The new Board of Directors will be meeting in early April and getting back to work to prepare for next season.  Also, we will be scheduling an ECBOA roundtable meeting which affords everyone the opportunity to offer thoughts and opinions about our association, as well as ask questions.  Stay tuned for more on this.


** As we get information on camps and other off-season basketball events we will share this information through our website (ECBOA.org), so be sure to check it from time to time.


** I hope you all have enjoyed the March Madness tournament and your bracket is still intact.  There have been some really exciting games this year and it looks like we’re in for an exciting Final Four.


Thanks and have a great off-season.


Joe Erwin
