About Us

Board 130 was granted its charter from the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials on Nov. 15, 1951. 

Board 130 consists of more than 400 members who officiate basketball games from the grammar school level to the college level. 

We have active Membership and Development committees who work to ensure that our newer members be given every opportunity to improve their skills and advance their officiating careers.

We hope you find this website informative and helpful.
