The Temple Basketball Officials Association (TBOA) is a high school officiating organization in the Central Texas area. Currently we have over 130 members in our organization that cover assignments for 32 school districts throughout the Super Cen-Tex region.  Our organization is comprised of men and women who are dedicated to providing quality officiating for area UIL and TAPPS Schools. 


The Temple Basketball Officials Association will prepare our officials for game assignments and to provide exceptional service to our client schools, membership and other valued stakeholders.

Vision Statement:

Based on the values of integrity, sportsmanship and quality, the Temple Basketball Officials Association will become an open and learning organization, constantly improving through dialogue with one guiding standard - to be recognized as the premier basketball officials' association in the nation.


Our goal is to train officials on the latest rules & mechanics as mandated by the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS), promote sportsmanship in conjunction with University Interscholastic League (UIL), and provide the highest caliber of basketball officials on the floor at all times.
