  • Our first President under IAABO was Sargent D. Smith
  • Vice President was Jack Gabrels
  • Rules Interpreter: Irving H. Smith
  • Secretary/Treasurer: John Oakley
  • There were 19 original members

Special Thanks to Donnie Eppley of IAABO Inc. for helping with this history!

TCA logo In March of 1963 our organization withdrew from IAABO and became the "Tri-County Association" - a "local affiliate Unit" of the Southern California Basketball Officials Association (S.C.B.O.A.)
  • Our first President under S.C.B.O.A. was Pat Breen

CBOA logo In September 1983, the Tri-County Basketball Officials Association changed its name to the North County Basketball Officials Association (NCBOA).
  • Our first Regional Official was Frank Wilhelm - 1983
  • Our first State Final Officials were Bob Latiano & Ken Perez - 1985
Finally, in 1987 our "parent" organization, the S.C.B.O.A. went "statewide", becoming the California Basketball Officials Association as we know it today.

Today, NCBOA provides the finest High School basketball officials in the state of California!  All NCBOA officials are State Certified by the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) to officiate High School regular season and post-season contests.

With over 120 members, we provide year-round training to our officials, and year-round service to our Youth Basketball, Adult Recreation and High School League vendors.

NCBOA has had seven (7) members advance to referee at the NCAA Division 1 level:
            Dal Williams - Women's NCAA Division I Official (now retired)
  Connie Perkins - Women's NCAA Division I Official
  Rick Young - Men's NCAA Division I Official
  Steve Espinoza - Men's NCAA Division I Official
  Tami Mason - Women's NCAA Division I Official
  Rob Bryson - Women's NCAA Division I Official
