IAABO officials have the honor to share the court with the fine young men and women basketball players of our high schools.  We continually find them hardworking, dedicated student athletes and admire their sportsmanship.   We also have the privilege of working in front of the great coaches and fans in the St. Louis/St. Charles area. 


I have enjoyed working with the IAABO organization and referees for the last several years. IAABO officials care about the game and the players. They work hard to ensure the game is called in a fair and consistent manner and they are excellent communicators to the coaches and the players on the floor. They are an organization that is constantly growing the game and working to develop young officials.

Their commitment to the Coaches vs. Cancer initiative saved one of the best high school basketball tournaments in St. Louis and their work provides thousands of dollars to fund cancer research. They also give back to schools through their scholarship program and we are proud to have had several players and a team manager win scholarships from IAABO. From top to bottom, IAABO is a class organization.
