You are part of the biggest senior social basketball competition in South Australia. 4 Courts over 4 time slots every Monday at STARplex!
And nominations are still coming in!!
But we’ve reached a point where in order to sustain that growth we need more players to put their hands up to referee (don’t worry, we’re simultaneously recruiting and training up traditional referees).
- <1 year refereeing experience gets you $15 credit/game. Want to get paid straight to your account? Ask Joseph for the paperwork.
- 1-3 years experience gets you $16.50 credit/game (means you own a black/white or grey ref top) or $18 to your account
- 3+ years experience and rates are negotiable for a game fee credit or EFT.
- Referee 10+ games in a season (there’s up to 4/night) and we’re willing to offer $30/hr ($22.50/game) for every game after 10 per season.
If you referee junior games (U12 – U18) you will 100% need a working with children check (part of the paperwork – STARplex provides the check at no cost). Rates above are for senior games only.
STARplex will provide a 1-hr training session for all those wishing to be paid directly into your account. Those reffing for credit – you’re defining what it is to be part of a community! We’ll walk you through it – as I tell players that ref – call the game like you’d want it called for you.
***You determine the quality of this program***
If I recruit from closer to the city, I’ll be paying close to double the going rate and you’d be subjected to countless technicals, district-level calls and, ultimately, a less social environment (and higher costs).
If current players step up, then we’re able to keep prices from drastically rising. We’ll also TRULY ESTABLISH A COMMUNITY SOCIAL LEAGUE that is both fun and as competitive as you want.
We need 4 individuals from each division to referee at least 1 game per Monday night. Given there’s at least 40 individuals per time slot playing, that’s just 10%!!!
REFEREES make $75-$100 over 3 hours as hobby pay (non-taxed)
COORDINATORS make $50k – $80k/year (depending on experience)
SPORT CENTRE MANAGERS make $75k+/year
Have you thought about a career in Community Sport? STARplex will be launching an sport administrator internship program for the Summer 2021/22 season. Keen to have a little fun while you earn a living?

Otherwise, a bit of petro $$ for your time goes a loooong way to ensuring our competition – YOUR competition – gets and stays at a high level (regardless of playing quality, you should come to expect friendly, focused referees).
