JBO... “Attaining, Training, & Retaining (ATR)” Officials
The Pre-Season Meeting has started, meaning the regular season is not far off !!

If you haven't started, it is now time to get stretching, running and working on those mechanics.
How many are ready for 2-hand mechanics of foul reporting ??

It has been a very busy Summer and there is a lot of optimism for a number of JBO officials to "move up" and start to show their stuff !!

Those that are looking for "Mental Tune-Up", make sure you get to the meetings and participate. It's only going to make you a better official in the future.

This year's JBO Mantra: 
"Making Good Referees into Great Officials"

Bob Horvath Contact Info - 
Me Personal email is:   bobhorvath2013@gmail.com 
This is how you get in touch with me.

The  Joliet.basketball.officials@gmail.com   account is a general email box. 
I do not use this for personal email. Several Board Members & officials use this account.

As a reminder, you join an officiating association to learn, to network and to grow as an official, not to get games !! 
JBO does not assign games, the officials/assignment chairmen within JBO assign games !!
IT IS YOUR ASSOCIATION !! PARTICIPATE !!

Thank you,
Bob
COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO YOUR OFFICIATING SUCCESS !!!!
