The Snohomish County Basketball Officials provides basketball officiating services for girls and boys junior high schools, senior high schools and recreation programs within Snohomish County, Washington. SCBBO has an annual membership of approximately 120 officials. We take pride in offering a quality service to the athletes of Snohomish County.

Our purpose as defined by our constitution is to:

  • Promote uniformity in the mechanics and interpretation of rules of the game for players, coaches, and officials.
  • Encourage the universal adoption of the latest official rules for women approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations, the Western Officials Association and the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association.
  • Provide opportunities for the training of officials.
  • Provide rated, registered and certified basketball officials.
  • Promote sportsmanship.

If you are interested in joining our ranks, please use our association's contact form or send an e-mail to one of our board members.


Although our members work a variety of leagues, school games are our first priority. The regulatory body for all junior and senior high school sports in the state of Washington is the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association. Its responsibility is to see that students are participating under the safest conditions possible and within the rules and regulations of the respective sport.

The officials work directly through the Washington Officials Association and are a vital part in seeing that these conditions prevail. The WOA, an associate member of the WIAA, has a direct working relationship with the WIAA Executive Board through the Officials Advisory Board, Officials Representative Assembly, and the Fee Review Committee.

All school games are played under the basketball rules as specified by the National Federation of High Schools.
